"Marcy Garriott's film, "Inside the Circle' is worth owning for the incredible dancing alone. These dancers are a cross between Cirque de Soleil performers, and Olympic athletes. Add a riveting and compelling story of three young men trying to find their place in the world, and you have a film you'll want to watch more than once.
Garriott, weaves a story that follows Josh, Omar and Romeo. These three search for their identities, long for family, compete against each other, and try to not repeat the mistakes of their parents.
Particularly riveting is Josh. Josh lives at home, gets in trouble, and tries desperately not to end up like his murdered father. Josh's joy ride on a golf cart, a prank that in a better neighborhood would be a funny anecdote over gin and tonics, threatens to destroy his suddenly promising future.
These three boys on the verge of manhood could have very easily found family in a violent gang. Instead they fight their battles, and their demons, inside the dance circle.
Innovative animation provides transitions between scenes, and the soundtrack makes you want to immediately spin on your head. The film also comes with special features that you will want to view over and over again."
A fantastic film!
