No car chases, boobs shaking or a sullen "hero" waving a gun around. That's right, you've got to use your head here... God forbid!
This incredible movie is about friendship, honor, dignity and simply doing the right thing. Standing up to oppression and winning.
The tempo is spot on, the writing is clever, the directing is perfect and being filmed in black and white is appropriate. But one thing
about this film towers over everything else... the acting. Everyone is well cast and gives "Oscar" worthy performances, especially
David Strathairn (nominated for Best Actor and surprisingly lost to Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) in 2005)
