    Has anyone seen this movie. It's an independant film that got picked up by Miramax? What did you think of this film if you saw it? I thought it was really good. One of my favorite movies. It's about a group of kids growing up in Rio D' Janero. Spans through about 15 ears or so. One boy strives to be a photographer and an other grows to be a notorious drug dealer/murderer. It takes place in the slums and shows how each person in the movie developed and got to be how they are. If you haven't seen it, check it out.

    You know what Dreamfunk....I was watching those kids with guns and I was trippin. You remember that song "Buck Town" by Smiff N Wesson back in the day. That's what that city made me think of. Especially the Runts. Even though they didn't have a big part in the movie, they were some bad *** kids. They need some whoopins for real.

    One of the best movies ever IMO. I think it tells a good story from all angles without getting boring. It even has alot of humor and violence. This movie gives you everything. On top of that it's a true story.

    It was sad when the young boy was gunned down while his girlfriend watched in that car. You just can't outrun a bullet.
