Best film I've seen all year
6 August 2011 | by aaron_holiday2004See all my reviews

This is by far one the most relevant and powerful movies I've seen all year. The acting was fantastic, the story was well told, and the cinematography pulled me into the film. Keep up the fantastic work and I am looking forward to seeing more. The story captured the complexity of a world that most people in present day society are not exposed to. I am really pleased that this film painted a picture of life in the Bronx. It is my hope that other film makers are inspired by this work and continue to produce similar work for other untold stories.

BTW...there are already people asking about purchasing this film on DVD. Keep us posted on!
