This film is an experience.
19 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

The Low Life is my favorite movie. This film left me feeling numb, that's when I know if something was good or not. Rory Cochrane gives an amazing performance, which he always does, as the aspiring writer, John Martin. Sean Astin, Ron Livingston, Christian Meoli, Kyra Sedgewick and others also take roles as interesting characters in this well written work of genius. Again I say that this movie is an experience, and to understand this experience you need to see this film. It's so good, I don't want to spoil it for you, so go see for yourself.
