Changing Lanes

A hotshot lawyer (Ben Affleck) hits a former alcoholic's car (Samuel L. Jackson) on the highway. Affleck takes off without Jackson and unintentionally leaves an important document behind. Time for some revenge. What makes this picture so amazing is that it's a revenge film where both conflicting parties are human! Too many times do I see films of this sort where one party is a near-saint and the other is a heartless snotbucket. This time, both parties have extreme faults and both contribute to worsening the situation. (Amazing.) I still don't like Ben Affleck, but Samuel L. Jackson is excellent.
