A surprisingly great film!
11 April 2009 | by Klover70See all my reviews

I was invited to a private screening of "La Linea" here in Los Angeles, but really didn't know what to expect. I have to say though that I really thought the film was something special, it reminded why I love independent film so much. From the intelligent, refreshing plot, layered and interesting characters,to the beautiful cinematography (reminiscent of Traffic, Man on Fire, etc). I also thought the music was really cool in the film (will have to check out who did it). I just think La Linea delivered on all fronts, and truly deserves all the accolades and attention I feel it will receive.

Im looking forward to seeing it again when it comes out.
