Storyline

FIX takes you from Beverly Hills to Watts, and places in between, in one day, as documentary filmmakers Bella and Milo race to get Milo's brother Leo from jail to rehab before 8pm, or Leo goes to prison for three years. Inspired by true events, we follow the trio as they document their trip from a suburban police station in Calabasas through mansions in Beverly Hills, East LA chop-shops, rural wastelands, and housing projects in Watts as they attempt to raise the $5,000 required to get Leo into the rehab clinic. Along the way the audience meets dozens of colorful characters, each with their own anomalous perspective on Leo's larger than life personality and style, and each with their own excuse for why they cannot help out. In the end, it may take a drug deal to get the necessary funds for rehab. Written by Anonymous

"Fix" Innovates a Genera and Delivers the Goods
27 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How does one make a drug movie these days, and not look like he or she is ripping off films like, "Requiem for a Dream", or "Spun". Well a good start is to stylishly shoot the picture from a first person perspective, giving a documentary feel.

Fix is really one of the latest takes on the "mocumentary" genera. Films by Christopher Guest come to mind when discussing mocumentaries, and movies like the "Blare Witch Project" defined it's boundaries. The decision to shoot the picture this way allows the audience to immediately connect with the characters, and keep them interested throughout.

I liked "Fix" more as a mocumentary than anything else. As a movie about two brothers bonding, it was not as innovative as the spin, it's photographic direction, put on the story being told. The performances are honest, and garner no more criticism than praise.

I screened the film in late 2008, and it was a breath of fresh air from the other pictures I was reviewing. I would recommend "Fix" to any movie goer, but especially to the independent movie fan; who will enjoy the picture for it's independent spirit." I am interested in seeing the next film Tao Ruspoli directs, and hope it matches "Fix's" style.
