I watched Sideways last night. What a scream-an excellent movie from beginning to end. I think Alexander Payne did more with grade “B” character actors than he did with stars(Jack Nicholson and Matthew Broderick) in his last and first movies, even though they were good as well. The “B” actors in Sideways, name Paul Giamotti, Thomas Hayden Church, Virginia Madsen, and Stephanie Cho don’t distract you from the characters or the story. Nice to see Alexander is wandering away from native Nebraska as well. Paul G has such a great face, permanently sad, even when he’s smiling. His college actor buddy is such a total louse- great stuff.
