Trivia

John Leguizamo originally wanted to play Johnny as being street-smart and wearing the latest urban fashion. But Vasquez insisted that Johnny be an innocent character. Leguizamo originally could not believe that a young man from the ghetto could be so innocent until Vasquez revealed that that part of Johnny was based on himself. See more »

Willie - "because i'm black"
9 January 2007 | by jewdaricanSee all my reviews

This movie is a sure classic. Vasquez manages to touch many aspects in society. When dealing with race, jobs, and friendship he makes it easy to put it all in one day. There are many movies that consist in one day, but not all of them are successful. Vasquez manages to make every character totally different. Though 2 of them are Puerto Rican and the other two African American, each one has a strong role opposite to the same race as them. This is big part in the film since tension comes from everyone, and not just racially focused on the typical black and white. The filming is good also with night on night shots that depict a true night life in New York. Vasquez used slow close ups at points for tension and meaning. I really looked forward to more from this director also writer of the movie. It is rare we get voices that relate to a movie behind the scenes of it.
