Storyline

When a high school senior, Chris, gets in trouble with the West L.A. police for joy riding in stolen cars, his wealthy but neglectful dad hires Chris's older brother Lance to spend time with him and keep him out of trouble. Lance is in the underworld, running guns, so caring for Chris starts out as a good cover. Then, he warms to his brother, and the two develop a strong bond; Chris gets serious about school and starts to come out of his shell. But, will the relationship be strong enough to weather pressures from Lance's business, Chris's discovery that dad is paying Lance for the care, and Lance's enjoyment of female companionship?

Great Look
15 March 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

When i saw this movie i was extremely impressed with the look of this film. I'm a hobby black & white photographer myself and i just can give congratulation's to the movie makers. The story and all the things seen in the movie work perfect in black & white. It also is a good symbol of the story, a friendship between two brothers. The black & white contrast is a way of expressing the different feelings with up's and down's shown in the movie. When this young teenager get's to hang out with his older brother after having problems with the law cause of stealing cars, he gets all happy and exited. After he finds out that his brother was paid by their father he is crashing. the movie has a lot of turning around and twisted feelings. One of my favourit movie's.
