This was a movie I'd never seen, even though Critics Raved (tm) about
Denzel Washington's performance. It's about the redemption of an
alchoholic who happens to be a heroic passenger airline pilot who saved
nearly everyone of his passenger. 4 passengers and 2 stewardesses died,
but 96 people lived thanks to what he did.
I thought Washington's performance was terrific. He captures the pathos
and he's a fucking believable functioning alchoholic.
Why did no one tell me about the movie opening with Nadine Velazquez's
extended nude scene? She was Catalina on My Name Is Earl. Way to justify
a movie's R rating.
