It has been far too long since we have had such a powerfully dramatic film grace our screens. Beautifully acted and audaciously scripted, Igby Goes Down is easily one of the top 5 movies of the year. This film captures your attention and your emotions, both comedic and dramatic, in a way that hasn't been done since American Beauty.

This film has subtle nuances of Basketball Diaries, but replacing the grittiness with a little comic relief. The sarcasm and smart dialogue that Culkin brings forth is priceless. Truly what film-making is all about.
