This is a one great movie!!!!!!!
how come it is so under-rated? i get to see so many movies and there
are so few in which i find myself glued to the screen, disconnected
from anything else, smiling, thinking, analyzing, wanting it to go on
forever! i still cannot understand the low rating! to begin with, this
is a very good, highly intelligent, highly sensitive script. hard to
find many like this nowadays. just happened to watch today "His Girl
Friday" and thought how fantastic it is to watch a film which balances
so well on its script and talented directing. this is the same here;
how refreshing it is to get involved in a fine plot, dealing with
people, real people, each character is fully developed from the
beginning till the end. no need for dirty language, no use of nudity,
and it works perfectly. and the excellent acting of all - main
characters as well as the supporting ones. i got very much excited with
this film as i never heard of it before, and thanks to my curiosity, i
overlooked the low rating and decided to give it a try. what is the
matter with all you guys who rated this one? bad relationships with a
crew member or what? and sure enough this is not, by all means, a
comedy. this one is a DRAMA and a fine one too. in order to get some
balance in this misdeed i here by give it a 10, which is not very far
from my original 9/10..
What a great surprise!
I cannot believe this is rated so low here (*4.5/10) as this is a
quality flick! At the end I thought, dang this has it all.... VERY
STRONG ACTING (HALL is really coming of age, mark my works, he will
impress you in his work in the coming years) and the writing was very
good as well... a "The Usual Suspects" feel to it... It is the kind of
movie that makes you look up what else the actors have done that you
might have missed... I watch a lot of movies, in fact I will watch the
same movies over and over..each time just focusing on a specific actor
to really understand his grove and how it "worked" for that movie...
Well I have only seen this once, but due to the strong work of each of
the main characters this is going to spin again in my DVD-player....
