Raising Victor Vargas

Along with my Donnie Darko director's cut was Raising Victor Vargas, a movie that Amazon.com keeps recommending for me, and seemed to be reviewed pretty well. (It got a near-perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes.) I watched it tonight, and it's a pretty good movie. I'd probably give it about a 7.5/10, which is about the highest rating I can give a movie with no real ending. The movie follows a week or so in the life of a horny teenager in New York; it's honest, intriguing, and natural-seeming. What it's not about was poverty, crime, sex, and drugs, which was pretty refreshing for a movie in an urban setting. It's worth seeing.
