the Heights Review

It has been hard for me to get into movies lately. I don't know if i havn't been seeing any quality movies lately, or i am just depressed. I went to go see this movie because i was feeling down and out and i had to go do something. I had no idea about this movie, it was basically the only movie that was playting at the right time. I only read the quick tagline, 24 hours with 5 strangers. That was all i needed. More after the jump.

I was a little late because of the la film fest was doing something in the theatre, but thank god there was a lot of trailers. The leamlle theatres is the only theatre where i like to watch the trailers.

It took me awhile to get into the movie, but the characters were well written and the acting was great. I normally don't like the actors that were in the movie at all. I couldn't name the actors at all i the movie, but i could name some of the movies that they were in. Except for Glen Close, whos role as a mother was superb. I don't know how hard it is for her to play a big time actress, but she played it damn well. Back to the non actors, I like movies where there are no name actors. It makes the movie nine times better.

The key line of the movie is, in los angeles it might be 6 degress of seperation, but in new york its only two. That might be true of new york, but i sometimes feel thats how it is everywhere. I am tired actually, and i want to sleep. This is a good movie and i will recommend it to my friends.
