    Bright Angel seemed more of a movie to watch just because nothing else was on.It could've been a better if only everything didn't start happening at the end of the movie

    Bright Angel Starring: Dermot Mulroney, Bill Pullman, and Lili Taylor Set among the working-class and sub-criminal people who live in the desolate expanses of Montana and Oklahoma, "Bright Angel" is a kinda-sorta coming of age story where characters wander through the plot without any particular purpose and things just seem to happen without any particular reason. That's great in real life--people do tend to wander aimlessly in and out of each other's lives and things do just sort of happen without any discernable pattern--but it makes for a bad movie. The only real drama of the film happens about 3/4ths of the way through it... and it's way too brief. Lili Taylor and Bill Pullman give nice performances (which is why the flick gets Three Tomatoes instead of Two), but there's not much else worthwhile here. Pass on this one unless you're the world's greatest Lili Taylor fan.
