Not much of a review this time, just an emphatic "watch this film"! The best film I've seen in a long time. Sideways has it all - great dialogue, superb writing, great characterizations, wine, golf and deeply screwed-up people.

For a great review of this film, listen to the Reel Reviews podcast review.

"Quaffable, but uh... far from transcendent."

Paul Giamatii is excellent in the lead role - his performance reminds me of Richard Schiff as Toby in The West Wing - you could imagine Toby as the character Miles in this film.

Each scene is to be savoured, and I'm looking forward to seeing it again. From the deep, personal introspection of Miles as he describes his love of Pinot Noir, to the humourous retaliation on the golf course as another foursome attempt to hit-though the pair - this film had me jumping from emotion to emotion.

Anyhow, if you haven't seen it yet, buy or rent it now and set yourself up for a treat of a film experience.
