An unexpected and truly satisfying night at the movies.
Zounds! Thank heaven I didn't see another site's 31% rating before I went to a WGA screening of "The Only Living Boy In New York," because I might have given it a pass. I LOVED it! I'd give it a 99.9% rating (after all, nobody's perfect). What a joy. Allan Loeb's intelligent and serious script is liberally sprinkled with laugh-out-loud lines and Marc Webb's masterfully fluid direction is stunning. Like watching a French film I almost expected subtitles. Webb made love to New York as if it was Paris. Flawless casting, Jeff Bridges is brilliant. Stellar performances all-round. Wonderful title sequence. And that fantastic sound trackthrilling! See for yourself.
