An energetic, handheld-camera account of a day spent trying to deposit someone in rehab.

Propelled by an eccentric cast of characters and increasingly seamy locations, Fix dashes headlong through Los Angeles with a little charm and a lot of verve.
| Original Score: 4/5

Ruspoli's scenic cross-section L.A. travelogue conveys a strong sense of milieu even as his wannabe-Strung aesthetics reveal the project's underlying style-over-substance concerns.

Caffeinated travelogue Fix pulses with a brash and seductive visual style, but the human drama at the core of its premise ultimately feels a bit underdeveloped; with montages galore, Fix becomes a slave to its insistent artiness.

Ruspoli's empathy for the high-and-low personalities that make up our urban web -- personified in Leo's friend-to-everyone, destructive-to-himself charm -- infuses his amped-up travelogue.

If any one of these actors weren't up to the task, FIX wouldn't work. Thankfully, they are real enough to want to invest in their plight.

A shakey-cam odyssey across Los Angeles, from Beverly Hills to Watts, with a carload of drug dealers of convenience, in which almost nothing rings true.

An engaging work of no small charm -- and one of the few exercises in first-person narrative filmmaking I've seen that really works.
