Its a crime that when people hear 'Friday night lights' there mind jumps to the show (which was great in its own right), but FNL the movie is truly the greatest sports film since Rocky. The acting and dialogue are so great that there are moments you forget that you're not watching a documentary. Everyone can find a character that they can relate to-- people with family issues can see the love hate relationship that Don Billingsley has with his father. People looking to move on in life can relate to Mike Winchell wanting to play college football in order to leave his small town life behind. People looking to find them self can resonate with Boobie Miles once he realizes that he'll no longer be the football player he once dreamed of. Overall this should be mandatory watching for all sports fans, and movie fans in general.
Usually a 78% critic consensus is spot on, but that wasn't the case for 'Boys in the tree's'. There never really is a plot that sets in, and even if there was it was sloppily done. The acting wasn't bad but that wasn't enough to make up for this mess of a plot and muddled dialogue.
You will be on the edge of your seat in suspense and not even know you're really in the middle of a character study. What the lookout does best, however, is offer up a genuine look into the struggle that human beings go through when they no longer are able to be who they once were. 'The Lookout' looks at family values, self importance, and is a coming of the age thriller/drama that is vastly under-viewed by the public. It also is a chance for Joseph Gordon Levitt to prove himself as a future force to be reckoned with in the Hollywood scene.
An existential and defining movie of the late 90's/early 2000's. The character development and use of imagery, along with the dialogue, make's you think to "look closer" at all the beauty in the world.
