I try to avoid reading reviews of movies I want to see, and opt to form my own opinion. In the case of the new independent film Thumbsucker, perhaps I should have consulted the experts. While it was a disappointing effort, there were a few highlights, including the performances of Vincent D’Onofrio and a surprisingly funny Benjamin Bratt. Vince Vaughn fails at his attempt to play a normal character, the debate coach; he was distracting, and it seemed as if he was trying to suppress his laughter in every scene. Overall, the film dragged on, and after it was over, I was shocked to find out it was only an hour and a half long.  I have higher expectations for my next two indie outings: Capote and Good Night, and Good Luck.
