Review: The Lookout

Ever since his obnoxious character in 3rd Rock From the Sun (a comedy series I totally didn’t like), Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been hammering on his indie picture career. And quite impressively so, as I’ve seen most of them (while some could be seen as boring, it was never the acting that let down).
Here’s another independent flick, and it takes time to focus it all on Joseph’s troubled character (again). Even if they do everything wrong, at least that’s done right. Luckily, story seems to progress well, and other characters, while not overly developed, are a nice throw-in. Story is a bit predictable, but it still builds up nicely.
So all in all, this could be seen as his best and most memorable indie effort yet.7½.
