600 miles starts off with a very Intriguing look into America's gun control policy.
I learned a lot about how and where I can purchase a firearm. Some instances I sincerely hope are being over exaggerated by the film.
The movie really comes to life the moment Tim Roth's character comes into it. It's a slow paced drama, that feeds on his low key and very effective performance, as an ATF officer, very imperfect in doing a very dangerous job.
His relationship with Arnulfo, a weapons smuggler who kidnaps him was fantastic. Every thing was so subtle as these guys barely said but a few words to each other, yet you could see the connection coming between them. Just amazing and effective filmmaking.
I also like how the movie was dubbed in both Spanish and English. Not that you really needed dialog to understand the movie.
It was a small movie that was able to tap into the human emotion and really suck you in with the great performances and excellent film structure.
