Lost Angels
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found the movie to be very interesting.

It is about the complexities involved with living in the 80's in southern California.

The southern California area, this movie deals with, has those societal dynamics because of the different cultures involved.

Someone that is not a citizen of southern California might find the movie hard to relate to but it is still worth seeing.

If you want a window into what sometimes happens here in southern California you must see the movie.

How do I know? I lived a similar life.
