Enjoyment: I like when movies have fewer, longer scenes. And long conversations. Great actors getting a chance to just play a scene. (Not that I necessarily like that sort of movie more than other types of movies, but it's one of the things I like.) There's certainly no shortage of that here. It's the 12 Angry Men of character studies. B

GPA: 3.1/4
