If there's anything I love more than a truly well-crafted movie, it is finding one by accident. This is a remarkable piece of art on every level, from casting and script to score, acting and cinematography.
This flick left Traffic in the dust and truly gave Liotta the kind of vehicle he deserves. There are half a dozen other great performances as well. Reading anything other than a great review simply amplifies the mystery of diverse taste. I so don't understand how anybody could not enjoy La linea. I'm buying this movie in multiple copies and giving them as gifts.
Moreover, the script even contains elements of Mexican surrealism, but without taking the plot into fantasy. I'm going to have to look into the screenwriter and the director because they got this one right. Well done. Marvillosa.
