The sad thing about this film is that there are a number of young fools
in this country whose lives mirror the sorry characters in this movie.
Wannabe "wiggas" who play act the lives of derelicts in an attempt to
escape the vanity of their own existence. They're just as dead above
ground as this story's unfortunate author. Yet they dive deeper and
deeper into the underworld in search of any experience to convince
themselves they are alive. Their only security is that the bungee cord
of their social privilege will snatch them back out of the scuzz pits
after they've taken the plunge.
Why do some people flirt with death in order to feel like they are
alive? However if you weren't blind to the truth you would have seen
the answer to all of their problems in this shallow film. As for the
actors they were convincing fakers in their roles. The 16th Street gang
members weren't convincing though. They just weren't as ruthless as I'd
expect drug dealers to be. Now we know that Anne Hathaway isn't the
nice girl she's portrayed in her previous roles. I guess many Hollywood
actresses feel the path to success is through the sewer.
