    Give Me Liberty

    ★★★★

    Where I once thought American Movie was about as Milwaukee as any movie could get, Give Me Liberty shoots it out of the water. Give Me Liberty is a portrait of the great city, told through the eyes of a transfer driver, Vic, who can't seem to get anywhere on time. He's also joined by an extremely strong cast of side characters from eccentric Russian Dima, to ALS ridden Tracy. For a good chunk of the runtime, Give Me Liberty…

    This was a very entertaining movie. I thought the concept was cool and even though the end was sorta predictable I still enjoyed watching it. I had some problems, the main character was extremely unlikable and everything had a fake-corporate type feel which I didn't like. I really enjoyed Fincher's directing because it made this movie really thrilling. I especially enjoyed the scene with his house and all the graffiti because of how it changed from one tone to another really quickly.
