A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints
4 / 5
Started off a little slow, but once you get through that, it gets really good, and I was really into it. Basically its the story of Dito, asked by his Mamma to come back to NY to see his dying father, he's written a book about his life, and as he heads to his old home, we see his life before he left NY. Robert Downey Jr is really good in this, his scenes with Diane Wiest are great. Rosario Dawson always brings it, for her few scenes she owned it. Back in the past we have Shia LaBeouf as the young Dito, I have to say I seriously love this guy, he really owned this role. Although I have to say it was a bit weird hearing him tell his girlfriend he wanted to 'lick her pussy' lmfao! And Channing Tatum also owned his role as Dito's some what crazed friend Antonio. I'd have to say those two were really the stand outs, and their scenes with Chazz Palminteri who also is fantastic are some of the best in the film. This wont be for everyone, especially as the beginning might put people off, but I say give it a go.
