Quotes

Filmmaker: So Zooey, what kind of person do you describe yourself as?
Zooey: I'm a survivor. They say only the strong survive. I'm not a bad person. I've never done anything bad to anyone. If I've ever done anything bad, it's to myself. That's my choice. I'm just a person. But I don't want to survive, I want to live.

awesome movie... sad but very good
28 December 2006 | by acidshackSee all my reviews

This movie is gut wrenchingly sad, but it is entertaining as hell. I thought it would be a lame movie because I have never heard of it, but DAMN... It has street griminess, drugs, hookers... all the elements to make an entertaining night (at the movies, that is). It is a little predictable at times, but it also kept me guessing. The story is a tale of a New York hooker and her drug dealer boyfriend as they try to make it off the streets and go legit. It seems like they are trapped, but they hit bottom and try to turn their lives around. The ending will flip you out if you are anything like me. I was practically in tears toward the end, but you can decide for yourself. Just watch the movie, it's better than most crap out there, and better than those HBO hooker specials (except for the Atlantic City one maybe).
