Has anyone seen this? Thoughts?
Several stories interweave during two days in Los Angeles involving a collection of inter-related characters: a black police detective with a drugged out mother and a car-thieving younger brother, the brother and his partner-in-crime who is constantly theorizing on society and race, the distracted district attorney and his irritated and pampered wife, a racist veteran cop (caring for a sick father at home) who disgusts his more idealistic younger partner, a successful black Hollywood director and his wife who must deal with racist cop, a Iranian-immigrant father who buys a gun to protect his shop, an Hispanic locksmith and his young daughter who is afraid of bullets, and more.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375679/
Talk about racial tensions. I thought it was a very good movie and said a lot of things that people wouldn't dare say in public, let alone big actors. I was surpirsed by how the cast gave themselves over to their roles. Sandra Bullock's character was such a racist, primadonna female dog--and she did it so well.
