A very good film--too bad they didn't clean the language up a bit for family viewing
14 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There's a real strong trend in independent films these days to use tons of profanity. Sometimes it is necessary for the plots as I guess it makes things seem more realistic. However, at the same time, it alienates audiences. This short film is an excellent case in point. While the overall message about racial tensions is very good and the story is super, I can't use the film in its current form if I wanted to play it to my students at school. It's a shame, as it really could bring about some interesting discussions about race, crime and stereotypes. However, parents would rightfully become angry if I showed it because of the colorful language peppered throughout. It's really a shame, as this is a very good film and people should see it. Just my two cents worth.
