Quotes

Javier Salazar: The Americans,they are very smart,but sometimes they can be incredibly stupid.They spend all this money,time and energy on so called war on terror.They put satellites up in space.They can ram a smart-bomb up a camel's ass... from a situation 5 thousand miles away.and every time the U.S kills an Al Qaeda leader,what happens? There's a new one before the body is cold.They do it a million times,and never get it... Because the real solution,always eludes them.

A surprisingly great film!
11 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was invited to a private screening of "La Linea" here in Los Angeles, but really didn't know what to expect. I have to say though that I really thought the film was something special, it reminded why I love independent film so much. From the intelligent, refreshing plot, layered and interesting characters,to the beautiful cinematography (reminiscent of Traffic, Man on Fire, etc). I also thought the music was really cool in the film (will have to check out who did it). I just think La Linea delivered on all fronts, and truly deserves all the accolades and attention I feel it will receive.

Im looking forward to seeing it again when it comes out.
