  • Chelsea's rating of the film The Moonlight Express

    a grim, slightly dreamlike film about coping with incommensurable loss.. leslie plays a hardened, worn-out undercover cop; it's hard to see him in these darker roles towards the end of his film career. i found myself relating a lot to takako tokiwa's character, esp when she was watching the home videos w her fiancé, as it's how i feel when i watch films with leslie in them.. trying to capture something that is gone
