How Does It Feel?

I was thoroughly impressed by Guy Ritchie's 2008 film RocknRolla. Like Ritchie's other films, this one carries with it a distinct use of camera angles, color treatments and - above all - a twist that leaves you not knowing who is for or against who. Add in some well-acted roles, the occasional British wit and some general bad-assery and you have the essence of the film.

Tough-guy, Gerard Butler (of the film 300) leads the way with the sensitive and always beautiful Thandie Newton sashaying her way through the film with style and grace. Even Jeremy Piven and Ludacris show up as a true odd couple of business partners. And they do a pretty good job, honestly.

It's tough, it's funny, it's intriguing and it's very, well.....Rock n Roll. I'm starting to think that was intentional.
