I've seen this movie at least 7 times, and every time it was like seeing it for the first. Great movie, well put together, you forget that it's an indie film, the story develops in a timely fashion, and the plot twist keep you guessing. If you are a fan of the urban coming of age tales such as Boyz in da Hood or Menace II Society Licks is definitely worth a watch.

​​I've brought numerous friends to see this film and they've all loved. Anyone who has seen the trailer is instantly addicted and can't wait to see the film for themselves. Being an Oakland native the references to non-tourist bay area locations and use of local music also adds to the lure of the film, but is only a great additive. Licks is for sure a cult classic in the making.​
