Yeah, this film is really about Life & Nothing More
7 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

What we saw in this film is about a young black teenager struggled to deal with the daily nothingness and hopelessness without any possible way to get out of it. His lacking of a father figure to guide or pull him through the growing pain stage is just a wishful thinking. His mother, a rustic, loud-mouth, sexual thirsty low level woman with big hips is a very typical woman and mother who got nothing, no man in her life to support her and her family. The boy got a very little sister still needs day care, it only means the man of the house just took off before the little girl was born. There's really nothing to tell about the whole film about anything, just a dreary hopeless life and low living standard of an average scene of nowadays America, not just specifically what the black people or their families got to deal with, most of the whites also like the blacks facing the same and inescapable situations day by day. They are not even what we called "Middle Income Families", I'm very curious about how these people pay their utilities bills, property taxes. Of course, based upon what we saw in this film, they obviously don't have to pay any income tax since they are definitely low income people. The whole film is very depressed to watch. We don't smell any MONEY in it. Guess if we could see some beautiful and rich black people and what the could afford like we see daily in the TV commercials, these God-awful situations about this boy and his family won't even exist. It's the poverty that has affected almost anything in Life & Nothing More. You don't need to make a film so repeatedly reiterating it. Although money couldn't buy anything, but at least let's have some first.
