Storyline

FIX takes you from Beverly Hills to Watts, and places in between, in one day, as documentary filmmakers Bella and Milo race to get Milo's brother Leo from jail to rehab before 8pm, or Leo goes to prison for three years. Inspired by true events, we follow the trio as they document their trip from a suburban police station in Calabasas through mansions in Beverly Hills, East LA chop-shops, rural wastelands, and housing projects in Watts as they attempt to raise the $5,000 required to get Leo into the rehab clinic. Along the way the audience meets dozens of colorful characters, each with their own anomalous perspective on Leo's larger than life personality and style, and each with their own excuse for why they cannot help out. In the end, it may take a drug deal to get the necessary funds for rehab. Written by Anonymous

Witty, real, and so much fun -- a wild ride!
10 February 2010 | by Gustavo SampaioSee all my reviews

I had a chance to catch this film at a screening and wow, I am so glad I decided to go see it.

Tao and the rest of the creatives really put together a wonderful team -- the ease and joy with which they worked is apparent in every shot. The character performances are bold, lovable, strong and somehow vulnerable at the same time. The locations are stellar -- it is a complete and all-encompassing homage to Los Angeles. And the cinematic guerrilla-style shooting really serves the piece -- allowing for some truly magical moments to unfold throughout the film that would not have otherwise been captured.

The audience was laughing, or should I saw guffawing, at the beginning and also at the end of the piece. Yet we were also moved by some very touching, pulled-from-real-life dialogue and the patchwork of cultures that make up the fabric of a fabulously seedy, not-often-shown-in-the-movies LA.

What else can I say? I loved it. Go see this film -- if you can, as fast as you can, with as many people as you can. You will not be sorry.
