Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. First of all, following his great performance in 'American Splendor', you can say that with this flick, Paul Giamatti really sealed the deal. From now on, he would be a major actor to reckon with (on the other hand, since then, he hasn’t played many lead parts in fact but he is definitely a highly ... read more

"Sideways" (2004)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Sideways follows two best friends, Jack and Miles, who are spending the last week before Jack's wedding in California's wine country.

I always have a tough time reviewing movies like this – comedy dramas that are fairly grounded in reality – because there's not really that much to critique. But in short, I really liked Sideways.

The movie basically invites you to share Jack and Miles' journey and follow their trials and tribulations, and it's definitely a fun and even enlightening journey.
