    That's interesting - I consider it Norton's worst film (umm, besides Death to Smoochy, which I don't even really acknowledge.)

    The direction is pretty good, but I just can't handle the plot.

    I'm a much bigger fan of Lee's Inside Man.

    "Where you going? Come back. I make you half black, half Russian baby. You look like Hallie Berry, they tell you dis?"
     
  5. I like some of 25th Hour a lot.
    I like all of Inside Man a lot.
    And I don't like either of them as much as I like Clockers, 3 Little Girls, o Do The Right Thing.
    Man's got chops.

    I love 25th Hour and I actually found Death to Smoochy oddly amusing.
     
  8. I can honestly say that you are the first person I ever heard to talk about that movie as anything less than the depths of suckitude.
    I know more people who like Ishtar.

    agreed. i meant no disrespect to lee's other works. i'm a fan. i just like "25th hour" the most. maybe 'cause i missed any buzz when it first came out and found it to be an unexpectedly powerful film when i channel-surfed onto it about a year or so ago. 8) 8) 8)

    Siragusa is God-fucking-awful in this, with his fake-ass Russian accent. Awful!

    Great film though. Great ending.

    guess i was expecting him to be soooo awful that i thought he wasn't half-bad. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I can understand that, shock. But I'm guessing if he wasn't an NFL player/TV analyst, and just a fat actor, his audition wouldn't have lasted long.

    Plus, if he was so good ... why haven't I seen him in anything else? (other than the Sopranos, which, at that point in the series, had killed off every other fat Italian actor available)
