Storyline

Jimmy and Jon are a couple of Brooklyn guys who somehow never found their way into workaday society; they never found their way into big-time crime, either. But that all changes when their old friend Frankie returns from Florida with some guns to sell. In the course of a few very short urban summer days, their lives spin permanently out of control.

How did he do it?
5 January 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I plan to be a filmmaker - I have much to say. But I'm just beginning my film research, including trying to find my favorite films. In this film, the director, Nick Gomez, truly accomplished to give his film an unbelievable sense of everyday reality - it made me feel 'at home' with the story and its characters, despite the fact that the story was a depiction of the story of the lives of those who are usually cast aside by society, especially nowadays. When I compose a song or any work of art I find it difficult to look at my art from a objective, or an outside, point of view. This film had the same effect, i could not help but be absorbed by it. All at once, I could not resist trying to discover exactly what cinematic techniques were involved to achieve this effect. I found one aspect that added to the film's 'realistic' look , a sound element. In a more 'conventional' film characters speak in turns, with some edited overlapping. But in this film, characters spoke all at once, which made the natural selective hearing process of the human ear even more inviting. Anyway, this is among one of the most creative films I've seen.
