Again the qoestion arises. Can Denzel do a bad movie? The answer is no! As John Q Dezel's acting ability will make you cry, if you are a parent you will rethink what love really means. After watching the greay movie and stopped crying I went to my youngest son and reiterated how much I love him. This is a heart warming tear jerker that will soften the hardest heart. If you purchase only one movie a yeay this is the one. Do not hesitate, don't think twice. This will become a classic in the realm of Gone With The Wind and The Wizard Of Oz. A reuly feel good movie that transcends race, social status and identifies and will make you reevaluate the healthcare situation in the USA. If Obama has this movie played before any vote on health reform there would be the first unamimous vote in US history. GET THIS FLICK!!!!!!!
Based on Cassavetes pere script, this Cassavetes fils meditation on love and madness is a truly curioisity item, lacking the master's profound ideas and rich subtext; 20 years ago, it would have starred Gena Rowlands, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk.
