Audience Reviews for Something the Lord Made
Based on a true story Alan Rickman & Mos Def put in a great performance. The film is loaded with some other great B list actors like Kyra Sedwick, Gabrielle Union, Charles Dutton, and Mary Stuart Masterson. The story takes place right here in Baltimore at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
I like Mos Def in everything I have ever seen him in. I had not heard of this film but channel surfed to it on HBO this morning. Great story, well acted and beautifully filmed.
I was intruiged by this movie for some reason, not the least of which was the pairing of Flixster favorite Rickman with hip-hop star Mos Def. One of the best movies I've seen in years, even as the deck was stacked against Vivien for years.

|Alfred Blalock:||You know Vivien, they say 'you haven't really lived, unless you have a lot to regret'... I regret...|
|Alfred Blalock:||Perhaps God is, as you say, trying to kill this child. I am not.|
|Alfred Blalock:||You know Vivien, I say you haven't really lived lest you have a lot to regret. I have some regret. But I think we should not remember what we lost, but what we've done. All the lives we saved and we did. We saved plenty, didn't we Vivien?|
|Alfred Blalock:||They say you haven't lived unless you have a lot to regret. I regret... I have some regrets. But I think we should remember not what we lost, but what we've done. All the lives we saved and we did. We saved plenty, didn't we Vivien?|
|Vivien Thomas:||The dead are with us all the time, I believe. Can't separate the past from the future anymore you can right arm from left arm.|
|Alfred Blalock:||Aaahh, but you see, they are separated by this, by the heart.|
|Vivien Thomas:||All connected.|
