great story telling technique
24 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, let's see this movie available online! I've been wanting to show it to friends after seeing it at the screening. I hope it makes its way to film festivals and gets the respect it deserves. For those of you who don't know, here's my rundown of the story, and why it's more worth seeing than the Hollywood crap with fake famous people (oh yea i said it :) Picture two friends, close since they were shorties running around in Queens (i'm from the bk, but i can respect queens's place). One grows up real straight-and-narrow, the other grows up more exposed to the street. That's the reason that the character named T has his troubles. So we see how they are as adults for most of the movie, just a couple of flashback scenes to when they were kids. But there are a lot of cuts to this rooftop where the two men are yelling and cursing at each other! It makes you think like, "these friends are gonna rip each other apart!," and you are made to wonder when it's gonna get to that point in the course of the story. You just don't see stuff like that in the movies, or even on good shows. Makes you use your imagination and predict how the story goes. Then you get to figure out if you were right or wrong- awesome stuff!
