Good movie
17 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

I normally despise low budget films, but this one was surprisingly good. It is a story about drug dealers in Washington D.C. who do everything they can just to stay alive on the streets. The story was so well told that it really didn't matter how bad a lot of the acting was. Since it was so realistic it was like someone followed real drug dealers around with a camcorder and watched them commit their crimes.

If you want to see what it's like in some of the toughest neighborhoods in this country, please watch this movie. It has a lot of disturbing elements to it, but it's still very good.
