by Dane Youssef


“Sideways” is one of those movies that seems to be made entirely for the scholarly and intellectual. The artsy, deep, hip and high-brow. Films about those people going through a turning point in their lives. Mid-life crisis’s and the like. And ones like this in paticular always seem to reap critical praise, a crowd of feverent fans and prestigious award... read more

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

I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I'd opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it's constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks, like your '61. And then it begins its steady, inevitable decline - Maya

Outstanding

“From Alexander Payne comes an outstanding and impeccably performed film, that is poignant, deeply funny, tragic and truthful, with some consistent moments of wit as well. Sideways also gets my pick as the best film of 2004, and there were a few strong films that year, however it was this film that touched me the most.For one thing, it looks beautiful. The cinematography is stunning and the scenery is wonderfully picturesque. The music is lovely, while the direction is faultless. I also loved how engaging the story was, and how fresh it was as well, while the script is both moving and funny. As far as I could see, there were no pacing problems, it may start slow, but the quality of everything else left me transfixed.The acting is absolutely astonishing. Paul Giamatti is brilliant as Miles, ” read more

"Miles and his buddy Jack are two middle aged men who finally are starting to see that they are just aimlessly wandering through life. So, the hopelessly humdrum duo decide to do what two guys, at any age, tend to do whenever the boredom of their existence seeks to overwhelm them.... they take a road trip. And despite it being in the more sophisticated pastures of California's wine country, this road trip, just like any other road trip (or any other road trip movie), ends up becoming a journey of"

"Vähän kaikki karkaa käsistä kun ystävykset lähtevät viettämään polttarielämää. Alituisessa viinituiskeessa tullaan juotua viinisylkikupista ja juostua alasti strutsitarhan läpi ja saatua turpaansa naiselta, joka mäiskii Jackin nenän uuteen muotoon moottoripyöräkypärällä. Jack haluaa vielä kerran päästä pukille ennen avioliiton harmaata arkea, hän onkin varsinainen pillumagneetti verrattuna masentuneeseen ystäväänsä: kaikessa häikäilemättömyydessään naurettavan"
