Liberty Heights is worth a look, with its rich characters and dialogue, and its gorgeous cinematography by Chris Doyle.

Coming to terms with "the other" (whether stranger, enemy, or alien) is as critical to the development of soul now as it was in the 1950s.

Writer-director Barry Levinson brings it all back home to Baltimore and delivers his funniest and most heartfelt film since Diner.

Both epic and intimate, taking on a large cast of characters while focusing quietly on the details of their lives.

The meandering focus of the script isn't quite as sharp as it should be, but there is nothing muddled about the warm feelings the film strongly evokes.

If more people followed Barry Levinson's example and made art after taking issue with something I've written, Hollywood and my mailbox would both benefit.
