A fabulous movie about friendship, set on the streets of New York.
The Bronx is alive with this film.
This is the neighborhood that I came up in. It's so actuate to the New York flavor and it was filmed right in my upbringing.
It starts on the streets of the Bronx and spreads all over the place, the village, Queens, etc. It hits the mark of everything New York is now.
And the cinematography helps to give it that realness.
Two best friends plan to graffiti bomb the Mets Home Run Apple by getting enough money to bribe a friend to let them into Shea stadium(not Citi field(perfect). They'll gonna get this money anyway they can.
But the movie is about more than this, It's about being a teenager and having a relationship with the only person on the planet who gets you.
Malcolm is lucky cause when I was his age my Significant other was a dude, he got pretty girl in Sofia who was as gangsta as she was pretty.
The movie is all about capturing this moment, and using the city as a beautiful background. It made me relate more, but who doesn't known what it's like to have a friend to battle the world with.
Loved it! This is my New York!!
