    Reader comments on Better Luck Tomorrow

    Subject: A brilliant piece of cinematography.
    Date: Jan 18, 2004
    Sender: ViktorPrevious | Next

    I'm honestly sorry for those who do not see the brilliance of this movie. It wasn't about ethnic minority problems, nor was it meant to show teenage violence.

    It was about highly talented guys whose greatest struggle is that with themselves. Counting myself as a similar overachiever with all the pressure, I couldn't stop being surprised by the seemingly never ending aspects of the main characters that I could identify with. Ben as a character was extremely well and deep developed and shown as realistic as I could possibly expect.

    I haven't seen any movie that captures and presents such a topic as good as this one. I understand that many might not like it, because they can't find anything in common with what's presented in it. And many of those who like it and think they understand what the movie conveys, are probably wrong, because only those that have experienced or are experiencing such times know what does it really mean to be an intellectual outcast, as 'it's only the size of HEART that matters'.
