Don Cheadle's new film "Talk to Me" is getting all kinds of attention from critics. I've been a Chadle fan for as long as I can remember - maybe it was from his days as Buck Swope on "Boogie Nights." Yes, I'm sure it was. In his latest film Cheadle plays Petey Greene, a DC radio jockey whose shock-jock antics galvanized much of America in the 1960's. Michael Rechtshaffen of Hollywood Reporter writes
, "Again demonstrating why he's one of the most versatile actors around, Don Cheadle gives another prize-worthy performance as Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene Jr."
Nathan Lee of The Village Voice agrees
, "As in the overrated Hotel Rwanda
, Cheadle is a live wire in dead air, shimmering with vitality—and silk paisley blouses—against his oppressively formulaic context." Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly notes
, "Cheadle hasn't really taken a role and walked on the wild side — until "Talk to Me."" Pete Hammond of Maxim opines
, "Cheadle, who has never been this uninhibited on-screen before, soars into the highest rank of film actors as Greene. He is flat-out great, a towering performance."
