Intense movie.. WOW
3 July 2012 | by (NYC, NY) – See all my reviews

This is another found-footage film that veers into uncharted waters and takes a look without any moral judgement (like most Hollywood movies) of Atlanta's most dangerous hood, "The Bluff". When you watch this movie, you see it from Curtis Snow's perspective, who is a drug dealer, robbery boy who only knows the life he was born into.

To the reviewer who mentioned that this film has no artistic value, I would definitely have to disagree. Though the film's content is harsh and unrelenting the way the camera follows the action, the way in which this film was cut together, and the social questions it raises along with the controversy are quite an artistic accomplishment. I would suspect that the deep underlying issues that this film raises is the reason this independent movie has seen such attention in the press (and the reason I watched it).

I feel that this film really is a call to action. Every city in America has ghetto's such as these that are largely ignored by the mass public, and I think we need to look at restoring these places in order to help the children (like a young Curtis Snow) who were born into drugs, guns, and violence.
