Washington Heights suspense tale
24 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I attended a film festival and got to see G.W.B by John Ullman. It was exactly what you want in a movie...great plot, fantastic acting and rich camera work. This film highlights the relationships and community vibe of the Washington Heights section of NYC. The plot is well thought-out and its suspense pulls on the viewer throughout. At the end of the film the writer and the cast did a great questions and answers session. You could feel the chemistry between the members of the group....which probably explains why the final product was so well done. John Ullman mentioned that his next film is going to be the story to Larry Levan and the legendary "Paradise Gargage" NYC. I can't wait to see this one as well. G.W.B is A must see, folks. Enjoy and be entertained
