Quotes

Alix: I found out how hard it is to change, really change. Even hell can get comfortable if you're used to it. All I wanted my whole life, was for that lonliness inside me to go away. But, it never did, no matted what I drank, or what drug I took, or where I went, who I was with. We all need something to help us get through life. All I needed was to find the right thing to rely on, something that would never go away, something I would never run out of. Turned out to be the same thing for everybody. ...

I believe this was a marvelous accomplishment which brought out the truth of living on the streets. Rosemary Rodriguez experienced it so, no one can say that this is cliché. Not even in relating it to other films in this genre. Alix's character is a drug addict right? but we believe her to have a grasp over it. that she is more than the addiction. this is partly true. like the director said, "there's humanity in everyone one of them". our belief at this point is predetermined but vanishes with change. with her willingness to stay clean being severed by the acts of her conscious temptations and every junkie around her. we believe her to live two lives. a straight life and a drugged up life. as in when she's playing with louie. kinda carefree, laughing. she, for the most part, separates herself from it, from the addiction, but she still has that guilt like when digna takes her picture with louie. even when she runs away from dignas place and pretends that she's clean around her friends, shooting them off and swearing at them. then, a day later she's back into her fix. that doesn't happen a whole lot in other films. Wonderful cinematography and great performances that make this film very believable. This film is very vivid and blunt with the characters addictions. It makes you cringe just seeing it. surely surreal. i like the directors use of narration from the main character's point of view or the non-verbal narration through what the character may be experiencing in their mind. What's the difference between reality and fallibility. But there's a good plot structure so it's not just random. not predictable. sure as heck not. One event stirs off the next. there's a sense of serenity that the characters meet up with and it's interesting how you seem slip out of it once again. some of it real serenity, some of it false. real heart wrenching. makes you feel for people who get involved with drugs and alcohol. how you're not only responsible for yourself but others. makes you investigate your own crutches. makes you examine your own life. yup. so anyways. Go out and rent it today!
