excellence through simplicity
22 March 2002 | by (davis, california) – See all my reviews

I've had the rare opportunity to see this documentary a couple different times and have been genuinely moved on both occasions. It's certainly not the most well made film, even by documentary standards, but it was relatively well edited and provides a good look at the reality of inner city life for today's youth. Definitely worth the time if you get the chance to see it. 9/10
