    Just an expert Paul Greengrass flex here. Claustrophobic, terrifying and powerful. Hadn't rewatched this since opening night in 2006. Too painful.

    That's Antonio Banderas' Oscar you got Joaquin Phoenix.

    All artists go through a phase like this. Young or old. Spiritually, physically or worse...both.

    Ch. 6 (It’s All Gone, Kid)

    I watched the whole series over the last 3 nights. Haven’t cried this much in a long time. Masochistic. It’s to the series’ credit that it focused solely on the survivors and their stories…no politics…no celebrities…no voice over.

    ONLY READ FOR DETAILED GAME ANALYSIS.

    The film opens with the Harlem Saints vs. Puerto Rican Devils. All subtlety there.

    Aaron James (Kevin Hooks) has a sweet jump shot. But the Saints are bad on the defensive boards.

    He scores their last 6 points including the potential game winning shot and they’re up 57-56 with “seconds left.” Excuse me?

    He got the ball with 10 seconds left and if you count it (which I did) his shot should have come…
