I love reading movie reviews. And I have always loved reading the work of David Denby, who writes for the New Yorker magazine. Here is a link to his review of Paul Haggis's IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH, which I saw, and quite enjoyed, last weekend. It's a very strong piece of work from Haggis, and as the days have gone by, I have come to like the film even more.
Denby's review is spot-on. I hope people give this film a chance.
