Fantastic!
18 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Truly an amazing film that portrays poetry as a means to express racial frustration. It is a unique look at life in the US as an immigrant, and the different ways people choose to live with it. One famous line is, "rather than murder someone due to anger, I write". This movie truly leaves you thinking about life as a minority, and how people survive and struggle in everyday life. It is comical and serious at the same time, which is hard to capture when doing a film like this. I give it an 8 out of 10. Definitely worth seeing. It doesn't hurt that the director is my professor either. But, all bias opinions aside, it is worth seeing!
