Why Don Cheadle did not receive a major award for this film is shocking! This is one of the best actors around today and his performance in this film is amazing. It's the subtle way he handles himself and the intense focus that he gives that is very rare these days. He works a lot but I feel he is one of the more underrated actors around. That said, the rest of the cast is also excellent! Such strong acting from all of them. The filmkmaking is very realistic...they were going for that "documentary" style shoot and they captures it very well...finally, I'm always very happy to see a great film shot on video...It's not money that makes a film good, it's talent!
