Approaching Midnight is captivating. I know there's been review's about the films' love stories but I think beyond the romance, the film was actually a splendid cat and mouse political thriller. Centered on a political game between a crooked mayor and an returning Army soldier who decides that he must protect his country from a local threat. The film to me was about a hero whose stakes are triggered by the events that lead up to each moment he comes across in previous scenes. From the passing of his friends to the expansion of new relationships, this film is just a brilliant film, moment to moment, it's Hitchcock like quiz with a military angle in it. I can't really review the DVD though, because I caught this film in a theater in Kentucky.
