Films in 50 words-ish: 21 Grams

Buy it!Simple story made interesting by an agitated narrative in which the leading males shine; Jack’s replaced his alcoholism with god, who inevitably lets him down; Paul’s new heart can’t mend a failing relationship and confuses his attempts to make sense of it all; but lumbered with tears, Naomi Watts is wasted on druggy Cristina.

A well worth seeing 8 out of 10.

Elephant……Infernal Affairs

If you found my comments useful, let Amazon know by clicking 21 Grams and hitting the ‘yes’ button underneath their copy of this review. You may buy while you’re there.
