Good movie. The pace of Reign Over Me is really slow in the beginning, but that's OK 'cause it works for the story. The way the back story (which has everything to do with the main story) is unfolded slowly throughout the first half of the film then suddenly revealed all at once made it really emotional for me. I actually cried. It's a serious, real, relevant story and is treated as such. Just like in real-life, in this film, even in the darkest of times there are moments of levity. Adam Sandler did a really great job of bringing that to this film (he did it in Punch Drunk Love too, which is also an awesome film). Adam Sandler was amazing in general--nobody does "mentally imbalanced guy" better than him. Don Cheadle was great...and sexy as always. I enjoyed this movie,
but it isn't one of those films I feel like I'd watch again. It's a film that I'm glad I had a chance to experience, and that I'm sure will resonate with anybody who's ever lost anyone in a tragedy.
Update: Actually, I would watch this film again. The more I think about it and see the trailer, the more I remember how touched I was by certain parts of this story, and the more I realize I would totally watch this film again.
