thanks for your input. i had heard about the topic. i wonder if i'll be able to sit through it.
That was a hard scene to watch, Caramella, I agree, but the stories and how they intertwined, and the characters they played all had two sides to them and we got to see both sides of the main characters and the "why's" behind the ways they acted in certain situations, their weaknesses and their strengths. Matt Dillon's character, as horrid as he was, when it really counted in life or death, he stepped up. It doesn't entirely redeem him but he was less monsterous after that.
Sandra Bullock's character was classic nasty plastic witch. but you got to see how artificial her life was and you felt sorry for her as time went on.
The young cop....the 2 black guys.... It just went on and on....each storyline had 2 sides to them.
It is a very serious drama, with very real situations that occur daily anywhere, and was well put together. It had some elements that were not for tender eyes, but it left you thinking for days afterward. Shindlers List and Erin Brokovich are other movies that did the same thing to me. They left me going "wow" afterwards.
he talks a whole lot about himself and only mentions rob in passing.perhaps if i liked listening to his music, i might have enjoyed it more. there are probably tons of folks on this site who will enjoy it though. thanks for posting, caramella. :)
