Smoke (1995)
Writer Paul Benjamin (William Hurt) is nearly hit by a bus when he leaves Auggie Wren’s (Harvey Keitel) smoke shop. Stranger Rashid Cole (Harold Perrineau Jr.) saves his life, and soon middle-aged Paul tells homeless Rashid that he wouldn’t mind a short-term housemate. Still grieving over his wife’s murder, Paul is moved by both Rashid’s quest to reconnect with his father (Forest Whitaker) and Auggie’s discovery that a woman who might be his daughter is about to give birth.

I cannot begin to convey the intellectual and spiritual riches of this exquisite, almost transcendental film. I have rarely seen a motion picture with better acting or a more literate, insightful script.Harvey Keitel, John Hurt, Stockard Channing, Ashley Judd, Forrest Whittaker, and all the other players contribute some of their finest performances.The film itself ends with a “Christmas story’ which conveys more of the religious-and humanist-meaning of that holiday than a thousand scmaltzy TV specials.Watch this movie, watch it carefully. Rarely has the beauty and sublimity concealed behind the facade of quotidian existence been better conveyed in a film.
