Directed by Allison Anders ("Gas Food Lodging") . . .the resulting mosaic is nonetheless powerful and sobering.
Scarcely represents a convincing, satisfying treatment of the intriguing subject matter.
Anders mixes real gang members with up-and-coming Latin American actresses, but this ploy fails to lend the film authenticity or vitality. The tone seems, to put it kindly, misguidedly romantic.
While the characters are colorful and vibrant, the film is strangely flat.
[Anders is] Anglo-American, and yet the flavor, the rhythm, the slang and the visual detail that she captures feel authentic -- to this viewer, anyway -- as though she were an insider telling her story from experience.
Though the picture doesn't build from scene to scene, that doesn't matter: Each segment on its own is richly detailed and vivid.
Anders' subject, Latinas gangs, is significant, but the treatment and execution are flawed.
My main problem is that I found the girls a bore and likewise the pic.
Crazy it may be, but interesting? Well...
Depicts the struggle of some feisty young woman to survive in the Latina Echo Park area of Los Angeles
Allison is at her best!
Perhaps in not forming into a story, the movie does a service, by not forcing a conclusion where none should exist.
A great movie!
