Slept-On Movies Vol. 3


Changing Lanes
One car crash on the F.D.R. changes everything. A corporate lawyer (Ben Affleck) and an afflicted father (Samuel L. Jackson), on the way to a courthouse, get in a car accident and soon find themselves committing desperate acts of revenge to keep their lives on track. This movie is one of the few original thrillers out there. The world of the film is as interesting as the troubles of the two characters, and I don't want to say anymore or else I'd spoil it. Definitely check it out. By the way, the dude who directed "Notting Hill" directed this. Yeah, "NOTTING" freaking "HILL"!

Andrew Niccol Special.

This film may be under science fiction, but you don't have to like sci-fi to like this movie. Written and Directed by Andrew Niccol, Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman play Vincent and Irene. In the future, there are "valids" and "in-valids". Valids are genetically engineered for greatness with only the best genes two parents can offer. Vincent was born an in-valid with dreams of making it to space. The problem is that in-valids are frowned upon and are believed to not be capable of much. Vincent vows to follow his dreams. By becoming Jerome, (played by Jude Law) Vincent vows to infiltrate Gattaca (a space firm) and go into space. What do they say about the best laid plans? Yeah. This is a sci-fi classic that I think has gone very unappreciated in the public.

Lord of War
Onto another Andrew Niccol movie. This is actually different from all of the films Niccol has done, that is, it's not sci-fi. This film shows the story of Yuri Orlov and his rise into gunrunning. This is an incredibly though-provoking movie that also co-stars Bridgette Moynahan, Ethan Hawke, and Jared Leto. The movie got good reviews, but went largely unnoticed.
