As Lakeview Terrace moves forward, it becomes clear this isn't a movie about the shuffling of black and white; it's a film about abusing power and desperately clinging to the status quo. It's a film about the fear of the future.
Slick, savvy and well executed, Lakeview Terrace is a typical studio release polished to a blinding sheen thanks to a superior cast and Neil LaBute, America's most dazzlingly gifted un-famous film director.
The movie's premise is suitably nerve-wracking and hits close to home: Who hasn't had to deal with a slightly whacked neighbor at some time? The addition of the law-enforcement angle is a clever twist.
