Watch: Sideways 2004 123movies, Full Movie Online – A week before his friend Jack is to be married, best man Miles and the prospective groom head off to wine country for a week of fun, relaxation and – of course – wine drinking. Miles is the oenophile and does his best to teach Jack a bit about the art of appreciating great wine. All Jack cares about is drinking and carousing, something he accomplishes when he meets the attractive Stephanie at one of the vineyards. Miles is something of a sad sack, a high school English teacher who is a failed writer at heart. He has yet to get over the fact that his wife has divorced him and that she has remarried and he now faces that nerve racking wait for word from a prospective publisher. Miles has an opportunity to start anew when he meets Stephanie’s friend Maya but when he let’s slip that Jack is about to be married any hope of a relationship seems to be lost..
Plot: Two middle-aged men embark on a spiritual journey through Californian wine country. One is an unpublished novelist suffering from depression, and the other is only days away from walking down the aisle.

Excellent expose of narcissism on two sides of the same coin
A woman’s take on this is probably not the same as a man’s. Initially I was put off by Charles Hayden’s Church’s character crudeness and Giamatti’s character’s repulsiveness but that changed was I was able to look below the surface. By the end of the movie, I felt very sorry for Church as he was not only dumb and shallow, he was actually so empty that whatever female was before him became a mirror of his need to connect with anything that felt like caring. Church did a fabulous job and was incredibly believable as a has-been wannabe, desperate to hold on to his dream of the kind of good life that is bought by charm and good looks. He is just on the edge or realizing his time is running out and that is a whole lot for this character to absorb as he has never given much to the concept of “thought.”

Giammeti is a pitiful, self-absorbed, destructive, depressed alcoholic whose in possession of two “things.” He knows a great deal about wine and he has written a book. Nothing else informs him. Yet his performance is so nuanced that we are able to fill in his depth of character and decency primarily through his huge, limpid eyes. What a performance. He should have been nominated for an academy award. This is a role that comes along once-in-a-lifetime for this type of character actor, like Liza in Cabaret.

The women are really nothing more than backdrops or props for the men to expose themselves. Madsen is lovely but you do wonder what on earth she really sees in this man. While he may be redeemable, he is really pretty much a self-absorbed jerk. It is most interesting that this film has been released at the same time as Closer, as they are similar in their exploration of self-absorption. Though Closer explores how destructive its characters are to each other, in the end, Closer is not as intimate and seems more artificial than the sweetly revealing Sideways.

If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving
Greetings again from the darkness. Writer/Director Alexander Payne was the creative force behind one of my favorite films from the past couple of years with “About Schmidt”. With “Sideways” he proves his insight into human nature was no fluke, but instead, an amazing gift. He captures many Hollywood stereotypes such as mid-life crisis, groom-to-be cold feet, post-divorce confidence crunch and the overall desire to be loved, or at least liked. What makes Payne’s work so unique is his ability to deliver multiple messages, with brilliant comic twists, using little more than unlikeable lead characters and sizzling dialogue! Moral bankruptcy is at a peak in “Sideways” as one of our leads (the magnificent Paul Giamatti from “American Splendor” and “Man on the Moon”) steals cash from his mother and the other (Thomas Haden Church from TV’s “Wings”) is on a mission to have his bachelor party last an entire week while claiming we just don’t understand his plight. Also delivering a wonderful touch to the film is Sandra Oh (Diane Lane’s pregnant buddy in “Under the Tuscan Sun”). Oh has very unique looks and mannerisms, but is terrific as one of Church’s conquests. The soul and spirit of this film belongs to the drastically underrated Virginia Madsen (if you have never seen “The Hot Spot”, make it priority viewing). Madsen (sister to cult favorite Michael Madsen of “Kill Bill” and “Reservoir Dogs” fame) literally jumps off the screen with her eyes and smile. Her character wants so much for a better life, but is strong enough to avoid her past mistakes. She is the one we root for. This is an excellent film and nice character study with a snappy jazz score. Payne has proved he should be considered among the best filmmakers of today – now could someone please help his film obtain better distribution!!!
