Movie Info

'The combination is simple: a lot of slow motion portraiture combined with a soundtrack of snippets of people's conversation and interview. This straightforward method yields one of the most powerful and compassionate statements on race, on politics, on class, on policing, on drugs, that I've encountered in contemporary American cinema.'

None of these faces and bodies belong to actors, but it won't do to call this powerful film a documentary.

Here are faces, shot with care and inspiration, and the most free and wild talk.

An intimate movie with a metaphysical grandeur, a detailed local inquiry that displays the crushing power of societal forces as well as the passion and vitality of those who endure.

Extraordinarily hypnotic.

February 19, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Intimate, singular, and hallucinatory on all aesthetic levels, the film strips politics down to the bone, not always successful but never opportunistic.

Those of us who live in cities see these people every day, but how often do we listen?
