Storyline

West of Brooklyn takes us on a heartfelt and often humorous journey from Brooklyn, New York to Hollywood, California. "Sebi" is a young Italian American man, a simple street kid and a secret beat poet, who after the death of his mother escapes Brooklyn to join his crew of friends who recently relocated to L.A. These colorful characters from New York are truly fish out of water in L.A. and Sebi longs to find a place he can feel at home. Sebi's friends, a beautiful rich girl from Beverly Hills named "Matty", and his idol, a famous Bronx poet named "Gaetano D'Amico" bring Sebi face to face with his identity and help him find the courage to be exactly who he was all along.

one of the worst movies ever
29 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I don't usually write reviews here either, like most of the other people said so, but as opposed to them, I think it is my duty to warn other people that this is one of the worst movies I've ever watched.

One thing I can accept is that the acting was good if not great, but that's all can be said about this movie. There was not a particular plot in the story. Almost 40 minutes of watching, I still had to ask myself "So what is this movie about? What story does it tell?"

Well, it doesn't have a particular story at all. It just drifts from one event to another, probably claiming that it is trying to depict a family, but no.

Also, there're almost no actions in the movie. People talk about things happened to them all the time, but do we ever see these things happening? No. We just see people talk, talk and talk without seeing anything actually happening. And if that much of talking is not enough, a VO narrator interrupts now and then to tell us what more have happened, or what people feel/think about particular situations - which we don't actually see happening.

If there're people who love this kind of story telling, I strongly suggest them to watch plays where they will see what a real drama should look like while people keep talking.
