      Lee Daniels' Masterpiece

      A hypnotically bold, daringly original, and utterly fearless film that seemingly effortlessly dances between drama and comedy, tenderness and tension, completely unafraid to go to shocking, dangerous places. It feels totally unpredictable, and nothing about it feels safe, which is something far too many movies are these days. The Paperboy hearkens back to the audacious spirit of American cinema in the 1970s, when filmmakers weren't afraid to make outrageous works like Deliverance and Prime Cut. In this film's world, nothing is sacred, and because Daniels is so assured with this approach, so completely in control of every moment, watching it is an enthralling, absorbing, exhilarating experience.

      Good movie, but NOT a 2 disc set!

      This movie is set in the south during the civil rights era. The storyline is great and the end is shocking. All the characters are acted wonderfully. So good in fact, that I winced during the skeevy moments. Now, for the other part of this review. I ordered what is in the description: a 2 disc set including Blu-Ray & DVD. I only received the Blu-Ray. I called customer service who apologized and said they would send the correct item. I got the exact same one - a single disc Blu-Ray. I never did receive my full refund and Best Buy is losing a Premier Silver member. Just be aware that this is only a single disc Blu-Ray.
