| Complex & Controversial
Tradeoffs, consequences of decisions, layers and parallels embedded in a perfectly-paced, exhilarating, action-family-romance. The family part is enhanced thru the device of home-movie/memory footage. What does romance mean & does it count for anything? Love at first sight? So tenuous. The city provides a backdrop for the action & I love that he takes the subway often, between motorcycle & car rides that elude police while taking care of business. School is not nearly as titillating. Drew (Scott Caan) lives 5 different lives at once and all of them vie & suffer. Can he determine what part of himself takes precedence?
