monkeyrating: 9/10

genre: Drama

waddabout: a mosaic of several interconnected stories dealing with racism, prejudice, crime, life, identity issues and the twists life serves - set within 2 days in the fast paced city of LA.

i say: must watch! no other movie has ever enveloped such a wide plethora of human emotions and issues in such a short time, and that too so beautifully!

monkeyrespect to: Paul Haggis - for his story that spilled over equally beautifully into his direction. For the uninitiated, it is Paul who also wrote Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby. I sure look forward to a lot more from him very soon.
 - though, his awesomeness is in a great way subject to editor Hughes Winborne for his super incredible editing, which is some of the best i've ever seen!

Also a must mention in terms of performances is Matt Dillon - his acting makes you hate him in flesh in the character of the racist cop... at the same time feel him, pity him and eventually forgive him somewhere in the back of your mind. Moving - to say the very least.

note: this movie, again like Kill Bill, is an example of POSTMODERN FILM-MAKING. bollywood successfully copied its structure and made a film titled Mumbai Meri Jaan, which shamelessly is also good and won many awards and crtical acclaim in India.

watch the trailer: the voiceover itself serves you the essence of the movie on a platter - leaves you thinking:
