Changing Lanes. (64) IMDb 6.4 1h 38min 2002 X-Ray R. Modern society draws lines between right and wrong, good and evil, rage and redemption. A moment of self-absorption and a spark of anger will cause two men to cross them. As the battle of wills escalates, both lives are changed forever.
Changing Lanes is a 2002 American drama thriller film directed by Roger Michell and starring Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson. The film follows a successful, young Wall Street lawyer (Affleck) who accidentally crashes his car into a vehicle driven by a middle-aged, recovering alcoholic insurance salesman (Jackson).
Changing Lanes is not the hyper charged action revenge flick the trailer made it out to be. Instead it is a thoughtful look at two flawed characters that devolve through most of the film until they meet their base personality and the responsibility of their actions. There is action and the plot moves quickly.
Apr 12, 2002 · Such speeches are thunderbolts in "Changing Lanes." They show the movie digging right down into the depths of the souls, of the values, of these two men. The director, Roger Michell, has made good movies including "Persuasion" and "Notting Hill," but this one seems more like Neil LaBute's "In the Company of Men," or Tolkin's work. It lays these guys out and X-rays them, and by the end of the day, each man's own anger scares him more than the other guy's.
Most thrillers have audiences asking themselves what the characters will do next; CHANGING LANES will have them asking themselves what they might do in this situation, because it is a movie about how close all of us are to abandoning the thin veneer of civilization and breaking all the rules to lash out at each other.
While Changing Lanes isn't a perfect movie, it's watchable and compelling, and works on more than one level.
