This review is from: Before Night Falls [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Before Night Falls is a brilliant portrayal into to the life of cuban writer Renaldo Arenas. The movie is so powerful that after watching it it plays on your mind.
Javier Bardem is absolutely awesome in his role as Renaldo, words cannot describe his performance in the movie.
I think that this is probably one of my favourite films.
It was nice to see Sean Penn and Johnny Depp was terrific as a drag queen. Johnny makes a georgeous lady when all dressed up.
Overall the movie is fantastic and is it really makes you think about how cruel life can be.
