Audience Reviews for Laws of Gravity

"Laws of Gravity" is about a bunch of violent, foul-mouthed people whose daily activities consist of shoplifting, drinking, smoking, and getting in fights with each other. In fact, so many small conversations escalate into full-on brawls that it actually becomes humorous to watch them carry on. Director Nick Gomez does an excellent job of depicting real life in Brooklyn, doing so with long takes and a handheld camera, and both the writing and the acting are top-notch. "Laws of Gravity" isn't about story, but rather about a way of life that most of us are unfamiliar with.

I really enjoyed this movie!

How very horrifying and how very unfortunate that it has no ending to speak of...
