When life out here keeps us down to only try to escape it until we can't go further and settle down, let down those that rely on us and be down in the dirt and dumps when there is no up. When what little we live off of we take down when we got a livlihood of a whole community relying on us that we can't let down. When we may seem like we are up when years of living in troublesome places keeps down. When we see others could use a pick me up while others need to get down from high places when there is not much to do but work for a living or live in the dumps. When life can take us down unexpected turns and down some dark roads we cross paths with those whom only believe in being up to not allow anyone to take us down. When the thought and sight of being down pushes us further into a downward spiral into defending our right to live out here when all things down here are like wild animals. when it's not easy for everyone to go up and leave to remain, dream of one day leaving and go down swinging to only get right back up and do it all over again. When living in some parts anything can go down as wrong as it maybe it's how life is when nobody cares about nobody to only let somethings go down and die and other things go up and live when we give others a chance. When we see its easy to pave a future when we throw down a path in what we take down and grow new paths for others to follow and continue. When we can't get up from our past we make sure others get up and put their past behind them when we are all fighting from being down.
'Joe' benefits from Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan's good performances, but stumbles with its pacing and characters, resulting in a movie full of potential, but not one that lives up to it.
