The Laramie Project Reviews
Don't have high expectations & you might be able to sit through it.
On a side note, it's been ten years since Matthew's brutal death and we still do not have a Federal Hate Crimes law. One wonders how many other Matthews there have already been and how many more there will be before the Government starts to look seriously at a Hate Crimes law.
The storytelling is done extremely well as it slowly reveals who the people of Laramie were and why they would be talking to the theatre students. This is a film I don't think I could really change too much of, because of how many strings seem to be attached to it. I don't know, I'm just kinda speechless about the movie; I was really touched and saddened by it. It's almost as sad as when Chief smothered Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Wow, that was an off the wall reference?
Because of all the "those guys" actors, the acting is done very well and believable. The scenery is moving and flattery to those who are in the shot. The story line is incredible and just thinking about having to piece together a script out of all the various interviews and events that happened while they were there is mind blowing. And they choose the scenes and words so carefully, they evoked so much empathy. It really was amazing.
