A low time drug dealing grifter gets caught up in too much in LA
I saw this movie because I know the lead actor and he is not bad at all. There are real highpoints in his performance, well, he's not the greatest actor of all time but there are similarities to Rebel Without a Cause - father/son conflict here & there you'll see. A previous comment I believe warrants this retort. Johnny? He could care less, he is always working and will continue to. The commenter who said avoid this film was whacked for it is way better than the crap they actually distribute to theaters these days for sure. Well all I can say now is rent this flick, it doesn't fail you, it holds up very well -- but its gritty & realistic so be prepared. Also, don't look upon Whiteboy as a studio movie just because Artisan now owns it. It defines what a low-budget indie is all about. Finally, it was retitled "Menace" AFTER Artisan bought it, yet Green & Lohman are above the title. Artisan was obviously trying to go for a different demo.
