Goofs

Millie Dunbar drive a wasted Volvo 760 estate . It is very hard to believe, what a car debuted in 1985, can be in such condition in 1991. Also, it is probably too expensive for main character, even if car was made in 1985. See more »

And, So?
14 August 2018 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

1. Miscast, a thin attractive model type figure to represent the Afro-American community. A good looking white male to be her counter. Ends up sexual? 2. Half of movie is historic TV coverage (mostly from air, some ground level) of R. King and early '90s L.A. riots. Like any graphic video w/out research & facts to help interpret/understand it's all in the eye of the beholder. 3. As a civil rights active advocate from decades ago I do not endorse one-sidedness on any side. Film failed to provide any discussion from Asian shop owners POV from that period or from police (black, white, Asian, Hispanic) and their POVs. 4. Film was sensationalism for it's own sake and lacked an intelligent base from which to form the storyline.
