painful and true
11 October 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

this is a very LA movie - even if the actual scene of the climactic crash was filmed north-east of Pico, in Boyle Heights - and one can feel that all the characters are real, not stereotypes. Even though I, as belonging to only one ethnicity/culture, and have only lived in LA south of Pico for a decade I cannot claim to be an expert, but an informed observer.

Our cultures here are very isolated compared to San Francisco or New York. But, yes, people in LA do come together in occasional and random ways, like maybe at a Dodgers games (not Lakers - no working man can afford that and still make his rent) and yes, you cannot predict how it's going to turn out. Just like this movie. South of Pico makes your heart break, for the characters, for all the people of LA who live side by side in our cities and ghettos, walled mansions, enclaves, hoods and gated estates but rarely together.
