one of the best documentaries i've ever seen
20 February 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

this out-standing documentary will probably never be seen by a large audience which is truly unfortunate. it is riveting, touching, sad, hysterical, and unforgettable in every way. it follows east los angeles high-school students for a short time in each of their lives after which time they pass the camera on to another person, thus the name of the movie. what makes it so special is that almost every stereotype you might have about kids in this tough neighborhood is proven false. you get to see the person behind the statistic and it makes you re-evaluate yourself and your perceptions of others. i hope that this film eventually makes it to video. it will be one that i want
