Exquisite movie, real sharp focus on reality and great visceral film making!
16 August 2018 | by consultantcySee all my reviews

I've seen this movie twice and got more out of it the second time around. Although some people might shy away from the topic, there is more to meet the eye, literally, than just the obvious. There are excellent performances by a number of talented actors but the story line and arc of the heroes is what gives the effort dynamic life. Anyone who has ever been a teenager knows that things could have gone off the rails a number of times. This circular, rising tension gives the plot life. There is "Life, and Nothing More" as a model for a window into a world you might not be that familiar with. This movie was several years ahead of the issue of "spacial profiling". There is a lot to be proud of in giving witness to a depiction of the human struggle. Many of the members of the audience were stunned by how honest this movie was. There were SEVERAL audience reactions of shock and understanding which validated the craft of its creation. I know a number of them talked about for days afterwards. How many movies does that happen with, nowadays? If it is playing in your area go see it, you won't regret it. This is an HONEST, dedicated, small film American effort; we'll be hearing more from the Director, I'm sure!
