The Soloist

Three words: Pretty. Heavy. Shit.

Such seems to be the screen tragedy for all great musicians. Beethoven. Mozart. And now Ayers.

This is a true story by the way. And Jamie Foxx does a damn great job. I sincerely believe Jamie Foxx is one of the most talented actors of his generation.

Robert Downey, Jr. doesn't really shine in this movie. But he doesn't suck either. Though his chemistry with Foxx is undeniable. I think Downey can work with anyone. He's a great team player.

The story was good. The acting was great. But the storytelling was too dragging. And that, I believe, is where it failed.

But Catherine Keener is still hot.
