For a young kid, the director/write/actor did a hell of great job. One of the most honest and thoughtful movies about growing up that i ever saw. The movie is set in the urban New York hip-hop culture, and that is something that i don't even remotely connect, but even so this movie made me remember and think about what i feel in everyday life. This to me is pure genius, to make movie that is about such a localized culture, and yet carries a feeling and a message that reaches across to everyone. Maybe some of the acting wasn't perfect, maybe the hip-hop wasn't the best I ever heard, but the writing and directing efforts overwhelm that.
