See this film!!!!
8 May 2000 | by (St Louis) – See all my reviews

The City is one of the most important (and true) American films yet. David Riker has found the key to perfection in non-sensationalism. He has told the rarely told truth of one of our most glamourized cities. His passion for these people shows. The courage he displays by making this film the way he wanted to, in Spanish, intensifies the beautifully filmed, emotionally moving scenes. David Riker is my hero! He is the most non-sold out director I've found. If you have the chance, SEE THIS FILM!
