A friend of mine passed me this film that he got from a friend and I watched it not expecting much, but I was blown away. This character of Istante, that was played by Silvio Pollio, is one of the best depictions I've ever seen of a drug dealer. I read somewhere that Pollio was friends with this guy in film school before he became a dealer, but nevertheless Pollio is so damn hardcore in this movie, you'd think that maybe he was Istante. Gritty, stylishly choppy and hardcore to the bone, HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN is a must see movie and if you'd like to learn a thing or two about drug dealing and cocaine, this is your tour guide. Pollio takes you through some tough neighborhoods in the Vancouver downtown east side, that is known as scummiest skid row in North America.
