Gangs of New York was sold out, so I decided to take a gander at the 25th hour. Outstanding film. Everything from direction, to story, to acting, to score clicked in this film. The dialogue during the "mirror" scene actually gave me goosebunks. I'm afraid this is going to be one of those gems that slips by everyone... Run to see this flick.. it ranks right near the top of Spike Lee's work.. what a vision. Oh, and if you're among those who criticize filmmakers for the grain present in their films, don't bother watching this.
