Superb acting, cinematography, and (best of all) Message
2 October 2004 | by spacemodulatorSee all my reviews

I'm originally from Baltimore and outside of Barry Levinson have never seen a filmmaker so perfectly use Charm City as a backdrop to great storytelling. I've seen hundreds of short films (even made a few myself) and what sets 'The Least of These' above 99% of the rest isn't the visible talent of which there is abundance. It's much more. This film has guts. It smacks the audience right in the face with the realization that things are not as they should be. People should treat each other as valuable because of those inalienable things our Maker instills in every single one of us. We all have hurts and pains. The important thing is reach out to others in the same spirit we wish others to reach out to us.
