I Netflixed the New-York-movie-from-a-one-act-play Heights tonight. Excellent little film. Great performance from Glenn Close. Cameo by Rufus Wainwright as well as the Big Cup. And a tightly written little script that impressed me so much I wish more movies could be so taut. It's familiar territory, but done with flair and style and without condescension. It doesn't offer much in the way of laughs, but it was riveting in its own way. Based on a play by Amy Fox. Directed by 27-year-old Chris Terrio.
