Alexander Payne's 'Sideways' is a fabulous film about two guys just trying to have some fun before it's to late. The film is one of those rare breeds, which is so comfortable and at ease with it's own style and dialogue, that we rarely question the characters motives and concerns because they seem so real. Personaly, I think it's a films message is; it's never to late to find yourself and it doesn't matter how you do it. We saw a similar atmosphere created with Payne's 'About Schmidt' and there was probably no director better for the job than him. Strong performances all around in one of the better films of 2004.

If you're in the arts at all, this film will make even more sense to you. Certainly, two friends, both "arts oriented," are at a crossroads. Miles is on the cusp of another wasted effort (his latest literary opus is with an obscure publisher, "Conundrum," tottering on yet another rejection) while his actor friend, Jack, has come to realize his better days may be behind him (he's about to "cave in" and get married to a rather conventional, though lovely woman -- and, most likely, follow in the family business). This film is about their last hurrah; before possibly renouncing their youthful dreams of artistic glory.
The character of Miles is just brilliant -- funny, neurotic, self-loathing (and real because of it); he's like a lot artist friends I know. (Okay, actually, he's like ME.) His friend, Jack, appears more stable and "together" yet he too (as we later find out) is racked with insecurities and self-doubt.
In many ways, this is a coming-of-age, buddy flick; it's about making certain crucial "adjustments" and fully entering adulthood. In my opinion, the friendship is based on an unspoken mutual support; they both value the idea of clinging onto their artistic hopes despite the pressing needs of finding a way to support themselves and some kind of adult stability.
And of course the film is also about "moving on" -- and the loss of youthful male friendship. This road trip is, in effect, a wake for their friendship. As Jack intends to marry, both Miles and Jack realize (without ever mentioning it) that things will never be the same. Marriage is often the final nail in the coffin of friendship between men (as, often, with women).

This movie is not what I usually watch, but it grabbed me and wanted to see the ending. Its a good character analyzing movie and the characters grab your heart and I ended up really enjoying the movie.

Sideways explores the darker side of character development and the importance of a good wine! Wine, you say? Yes, the essence of wine as a metaphor of the lives we lead, our hopes for the future and our struggles, occassionally, to glimpse the light in our lives through the haze. It's all about making choices, moral or immoral, and its effects on those who surround us. Anyone searching for a strong character driven movie with a sense of humour and an extraordinary insight into the human experience will be delighted with this quirky, yet endearing story that is ... Sideways!

Great cast and funny script are highlights of this buddy movie. However fair warning: both main characters are presented in very unflattering ways at various points in the movie. Story itself is straightforward, it's the acting and banter that stand out.
