Seven Pounds

Just saw Will Smith's new movie Seven Pounds. Fuck the reviews, this film is amazing. It is bleak, it's draining, and you have to be patient (although to be fair, it's not that difficult to figure out what's going on fairly early into the movie). Smith's performance was once again stellar - this might actually be the best I've ever seen him act.

I don't necessarily think it's on some cynical tug-on-the-heartstrings Hollywood bullshit (*cough* Changeling *cough*), it's not your typical Will Smith vehicle. Nowhere near as saccharine as the (excellent) Pursuit of Happyness. It's on general release in the UK in mid-January, and I'd definately recommend checking it out. Fuck what you heard.
