I was not that into this film. I usually like quirky coming of age stories, but this one just didn't have the punch for me.
I think the voice over narration got to me. The dialog was sparse.
The Wire is one of the best TV shows ever. It' on my top 5 and I've seen the run multiple times. Put it on your list. It's so real and gritty, and David Simon is wonderful. Anything with his name on it is gold. And his books too! Read those as well. Read The Corner!
The Wire is hands down one of the best TV shows of all time. I have watched the entire run tooooo many times. It's so good. David Simon is a genius and all of his shows are so well researched and written. He has lived the life.
I haven't met anyone who has seen the show and not loved it. It sucks you in! With mystery, suspense, great camera work, super acting, a great storyline. And MORIARTY!
This show is really good. Once you watch one you'll be hooked. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Sherlock in such a fun way - so brooding and awkward. Ah! I can't wait for more seasons.
