Goofs

The manner in which Shadow uses her pinhole camera is incorrect. For example, when she takes the picture of Treasure, she removes the cover from the pinhole and leaves the pinhole uncovered for a much longer period of time than required (correct time is 2-3 seconds vs. the 15-20 seconds "Shadow" leaves the pinhole uncovered). In addition, she leaves the pinhole uncovered until Treasure turns and walks away from her, and only then does she cover the pinhole. When we see that picture later, it is a perfectly developed, non-blurry picture of Treasure standing still, facing Shadow. First, the picture would've been extremely overexposed, quite possibly nothing but dark gray or black. Second, the picture would've been blurry from the fact that Treasure didn't just move, she turned and walked away before the pinhole was closed. See more »

If you like prison movies of quality & depth, you'll like this one.
7 July 2002 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This film takes you on a roller coaster ride through a treacherous and dismal glimpse in the life of a street-hardened incarcerated woman named Treasure, a gang-banging "G" girl,searching for her imprisoned mother who abandoned her in her youth. Often times, prison movies rely heavily on violent content to carry the movie over the top. This movie is intriguing because it delves into the relationships and encounters Treasure has in her quest to find her mother, showing not only her vulnerability and humanness, but also her ruthlessness and desperation...a great character study. This film could have been outstanding had more attention been paid to other main characters in depth as was Treasure's character. The film's ending was quite surprising and not what you would expect from your average prison movie.I would recommend this film for your collection.
