This doc. inspired me. It made feel progress is still made.
17 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This Doc inspired me. Haskel Wexler,ASC (one of the greatest DP's of our time)spent three years documenting this civil rights struggle to improve mass transit in the inner cities of LA. After the Doc was over I felt the importance of what they are doing, both from a here and now POV and based on general ethics. A great number of injustices are exposed with out being left sided or biased. It's just what's happening now. The unequal distribution of funds for mass transit is black mark on the city of LA and more people who know of this, the better. SEE THIS DOC!
