I like and dislike this movie. Geez, Spike I like what you’re saying, but hate how you say it.
25th Hour deals with a day in the life of a drug dealer, played by Ed Norton (c’mon can’t somebody cast him as a sewer worker) before he goes to prison.
It really hits you over the head with the Rockefeller laws, and, at some times, a blinking neon sign letting you know what the messages of the movie are. The film is marred by stylistic jump and stutter cuts for no good reason, they only jerk around the story, which when you look at it, isn’t that much, and includes a cheat ending which isn’t an ending.
This has to have the most understated performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman ever.
Spike — Western Union
That’s all I’m gonna say.
So, those rumours about Pamela Anderson starring in the next Spike Lee joint, wassup wit’ that?
