I must admit that I was predisposed to like this movie even before I see it in its entirety. It was through IMDb that I found it and then went further in my muat turun ability to get it.
It has been so long since I watched Benicio Del Toro (Benicio Monserrate Rafael Del Toro Sanchez – that’s just LONG!) in action and he did not disappoint in this drama. His was the meatiest role I thought, as the recovering heroin addict who had lost his best friend. Oh, Halle Berry’s in it too. Heh. The script was sparse throughout, and there were a lot of head shots especially the eyes. Haunting is the word. A nice change from long monologues and wide angle shots.
The movie kinda reminded me of Half Nelson, although the storyline was very different. But I like both of them.
