Jump Tomorrow Reviews
Tunde Adebimpe is currently one of my favorite people in the world right now. I love every scene of Jump Tomorrow that he's in, I love TV on the Radio, and I recently saw Rachel Getting Married, which gave him a supporting role that he totally owned. His character in Jump Tomorrow ("Jorge") is hysterical and heartbreaking at all the right moments. His seriousness in the role provides the leverage by which all other characters can be extremes of their own personalities.
The entire story sounds completely ridiculous, but it flows in such a way that it makes you forget the silliness of the plot. The characters are somewhat fantastical, but very real and down to earth. The situations the characters find themselves in are also extraordinary, but extremely entertaining and brilliantly crafted. My favorite moments of the film are the telenovela scenes with the dramatic head turns and exaggerated line deliveries.
This movie deserves to be watched more than once and sadly, I have yet to give it that honor. Definitely one of my favorite films of the decade.
