Nuanced Crime Drama
30 April 2019 | by Graham-joeySee all my reviews

This is a pretty nuanced crime drama that involves a lot racial and class tension in whatever side of Los Angeles. This may be more centrally focused on the police officer, but was really drawn to the young men who are dealing with a very real situation of not having a lot of great alternatives in the job force or lack of funds for an education and turning to selling drugs in a very unique way I haven't seen done before. Instead of it being a melodramatic decision to lead a life of crime, its almost just like "well, what else are we going to do?" And without a great answer...they are led down a path, which like the description says puts them on a collision course with a cop just trying to make it. Racially and socially infused throughout, I enjoyed this crime drama!
