This is the kind of movie that makes you realize how shallow all of the Hollywood movies are these days. I watched HEARTLESS intently last night, hanging onto every word - it was spellbinding and intellectually thought provoking. The characters were intense...I found myself wanting more.. The range of emotions I felt while watching the lead character was unbelievable - I found myself right there with the lead character - feeling what he must have been feeling. Ridley was terrific. I wanted to watch it again so I recapture all of the subtleties of the plot and could appreciate the mastery of the script. Additionally, the message in the final scene was so beautiful.
