Co-winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Dramatic Film at this year's Sundance Film Festival as well as a winner for Best Direction, Girlfight heralds in a new femininity for the new century. It marks the breathtaking debut of an incendiary new filmmaker (Karyn Kusama) and a ferocious new star (Michelle Rodriguez).
score = 90
comments = An affirmation of a girl's right to be anything she wants to
be. If there is such a thing as a macho girl, Diana fits the bill.
She says it all when she says "I'm not a girly girl" yet she has
a softness that is so appealing. Note the music by Paul
Shapiro (?) a perfect example of how music can add to the movie's mood.
score = 100
comments = I think "Girlfight is one of the greatest film I have seen
this year so far. I really think that Diana (Michelle Rodriguez) and
Tiny (Ray Santiago) were excellent in their role. I wish them
both the best of luck and to continue their excellent performances.
Also, Please note that these two individual are LATINO, and that's great
to see more LATINO in the movie industry. BEST OF LUCK TO BOTH OF
YOU Michelle and Ray.
