Awesome movie
12 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I have lived in Los Angeles for 7 years now, I never knew anything about MacArthur park. I knew that places like that existed and that there are dark places in society that most of us would consider hell. I knew that there were people that have lived in such places and were able to escape that world. I have a lot of respect for those that have made it out. I had heard about this movie but I never saw it. It was not until a co-worker of mine asked me if I had ever seen the movie. I told him I had not and he told me it was "his" movie. I was hesitant to believe him but he told me he wrote the screenplay. I looked it up and there it was; Tyrone Atkins. "Cody" as he goes by, gave me a copy of the movie and I was rather impressed with it. I totally recommend this movie. Very gritty movie. There is a whole different world out there that most people tend to ignore and we cannot forget how fortunate and blessed we are until you see people who truly have lost it all.
