Storyline

A young woman in L.A. is having a bad day: she's evicted, an audition ends with a producer furious she won't trade sex for the part, and a policeman nabs her for something she didn't do, demanding fellatio to release her. She snaps, grabs his gun, takes his uniform, and leaves him cuffed to a tree where he's soon having a defenseless chat with a homeless man. She takes off on the cop's motorcycle and, for an afternoon, experiences a cop's life. She talks a young man out of suicide and then is plunged into violence after a friendly encounter with two "vatos." She is torn between self-protection and others' expectations. Is there any resolution for her torrent of feelings? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An interesting experiment.
24 October 2003 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Bleak look at the life of the less-privileged in contemporary Los Angeles. Darling Narita is utterly believable as the unemployed, homeless actress who gets to be a "cop" for a day, and the dialogue, situations and general flow of the film have a definite ring of authenticity (you will never say to yourself "no, this couldn't happen"). The director's documentary-like technique draws you into the film; on the other hand, it doesn't give you too many insights into the characters. Ultimately, the film comes to a dead end - like its heroine, it has nowhere to go. (**1/2)
