Let me at least put some clothes on, and I will drive you home.
I can walk.
Get your butt back in the hotel room, or I'm gonna drop this towel!

It never ceases to amaze us that so many of the "smaller" movies have more substance and interest than the so called blockbusters. Best Man Down is a fine example. Interesting from the start, and with a few different threads in the early stages which inevitably come together and make sense as the movie progresses. Very strong performances from all the cast, with a special mention to Addison Timlin in the pivotal role as Ramsey.
Set mainly in the fairly bleak backdrop of Minnesota, this movie is engaging and thoughtful with a satisfying and believable resolution.
This appears to be the first movie directed and written by Ted Koland, and I hope he does more.
