25th Hour
The story follows nice guy Monty Brogan (Edward Norton) during his last day of freedom, after his conviction for cocaine trafficking. To figure out where his life went wrong, he goes on a journey to say goodbye to his father a retired firefighter, now a bartender (Brian Cox) and his two best high-school buddies - Jakob Elinsky (Philip Seymour Hoffman) a sad-sack teacher, and Frank Slattery (Barry Pepper) a cynical stock trader. He also wants to settle accounts with the Russian mobsters who may have set him up or was it his live-in girlfriend, Naturelle (Rosario Dawson)? Along the way he rails against every member of New York's multi-ethnic population, the brutal police, the rich, the poor as well as Osama bin Laden, as it intelligently deals with the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. This is the first film to feature extensive footage of Ground Zero, including somber shots of the "pillars of light" that shone from there last year. But even deeper are the mental scars on the characters, whose conversations on the subject are deeply revealing. The dialogue is often hilarious and remarkably unforced, mainly due to the uniformly excellent cast, led by Norton who is perfect as the brooding, soul-searching hero beautifully expressing Spike Lee's love and rage for his hometown, New York City.
