The Twenty-First Century

Solitary Man [2009]

If you want something completely different from the usual crap we see nowadays, I suggest you watch Solitary Man. Michael Douglas is on top of his game as a man who watches his life go down the drain because of his job and romantic indiscretions. He is divorced, his daughter doesn’t trust him around her son anymore, and he just slept with his girlfriend’s daughter. He might not be a likable guy, but he has his reasons. Powerful character study, well written, and straighforwad (exactly my type of movies). Douglas is surrounded by a fine cast aswell.

Fun fact: Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito appear together for the first time in over 20 years since The War of the Roses (1989).
