25th Hour

It has almost never happened that a film one did not appreciate first time improved on the second visit. This macho sob tale remains platitudinous and sentimental with hardly an opportunity to soar. The colors are garish and the script verbose. Little to add to what is below. Great A O Scott thinks otherwise--perhaps it is too culture specific for me.
