Random Notes, 27 March 2013
Author: michaeljayallen from United States

A couple of the reviews in NYC said something about iffy or inexperienced acting from the younger brother played by Fady Elsayed, so I was paying particular attention to his acting. Of course in film, as big brother and experienced actor James Floyd is quoted on IMDb, the director and editor can make or break an actor's performance. So maybe Fady sucked 95% of the time, who knows, but what is in the film was just fine by me.

As someone else pointed out here, the younger brother's turnaround at the end of film isn't really explained. But there had to be some passage of time since what had happened to him previously, and I guess we're probably supposed to figure he did a lot of reevaluating and growing up as a result of what he went through. Why there weren't some clues about his thinking and what if anything else influenced him would be a good question for the director and screenwriter and editor though. I suspect there was a scene or two filmed that they decided didn't work or was too obvious or something.

Another commenter here with some real life exposure to this sort of culture thought the low life stuff is a lot worse in real life. Well, it is a fictional film. I've been around the block myself and the drug dealer crack house and its denizens seemed close enough to me.
