Perception is everything....
13 March 2015 | by ukaunaSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. This was a refreshing point of view a an artist in Hollywood with one foot in a city that can bring his dreams to life, and one in the city that he loves so much. The anticipation comes with waiting to see which city will make him, which one will possibly break him and where will he land. In the mist of it all, so many different points of view of relationships, culture and gender approached intelligently and raw. While this film may offend some and validate others, It is sure to make you take a moment to decide if you agree.

~Great film and visually artistic.
