Saw this at a screening in L.A.- great film!
14 February 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Story, direction, acting, cinematography, editing are tight and powerful!

Story begins with a young, good looking, urban minister trying to convert a street corner prostitute by "hiring" her to sit in his car and listen to him preach.

Tension builds as the prostitute reluctantly but slowly begins to actually pay attention to his teachings as he gradually becomes more and more sexually drawn to her. This wrestling match between morality and desire creates tense and explosive performances complimented by the incredible photography of the film.

I felt like I was watching an early short by Martin Scorcese or Spike Lee before they launched their careers.

I highly recommend this short film and I look forward to the full length feature that I hear is coming soon.
