Flight - Movie Review

Flight (R) 138 minutes  A
A high flying emotional acrobat

Starring Denzel Washington, Kelly Reilly, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Bruce Greenwood, Nadine Velazquez, Melissa Leo, Tamara Tunie, Brian Geraghty

No one plays cool like Denzel Washington.  Flight might be the biggest thrill ride I've had at the movies all year!  It has everything I love about cinema- grit, emotion, sex, suspense, darkness, and an absorbing character that transcends the big screen.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away), Flight manages to be the perfect "popcorn movie," while demonstrating an everyman type melancholy and fallibility.  Roger Ebert called the film, "nearly flawless."  I call it one of the best films you'll see in 2012.

Highly recommended.
