a look into the heart of the urban jungle
6 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie on the 5th of Nov.. It's a look into the heart of the urban jungle with an outstanding cast operating on all cylinders. John Leguizamo gives a tour de force performance as a retarded young man trying to cope with overwhelming problems, including his mother's violent death.

Rosie Perez, Marisa Tomei and Anabella Sciorra are among an all star cast that breathe fire and passion into this intense drama.
