Cruz: [reading poetry] I want to get shot and die a noble death. / I want to get shot saving someone's life. / I want to get shot because getting shot hurts. / I want to get shot so that I can rest. / My body can't affort my lifestyle anymore. / I want to get shot because it's quick - and painful. / I've had a good life.

Not a bad film.
6 April 2013 | by naregianSee all my reviews

This movie has no reviews, and I stumbled upon it in my ratings list, and remembered how good it was. I know probably no human soul will read this as this film was released at only a few small film festivals. I caught this movie at the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival and was pleasantly surprised.

I saw it 4 years ago and I still remember enough about it to write a review. The film dealt with a re-entrance to the world of drugs by an aspiring artist. The film carried a deep message as to what comes along with the addiction of drugs, and how it cannot save you from the heartbreak of losing a loved one. Not only does it not save you from the problems, but it makes them worse.

I remember walking out of the theater, a mere 12 year old (give or take), shaken by the emotional content of this film including it's depiction of drug addiction.
