August Rush - 10/10
As a movie, it falls short in many regards. This is not a movie though. This is a love song to the power of music. This is a piece of art and whatever shortcomings it may have when it comes to filmmaking, it overcomes in everything else. The love of music comes through loud and clear and if you love music... I mean truly love it, then you will love this film. Surrender your criticism. You will fall in love. The only film I've ever watched that makes me cry and the only thing outside of the death of my cats to make me cry in the last 15 years. If you love music, you will love this. Just let it all go and remember this is not a movie; this is a love song for music.
