Movie Reviews

Harrowing, yet hopeful
Jennifer Christiansen | 08/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This independent film portrays the many fears and challenges associated with today's adolescents. Patton-Spruill vividly recounts how three youth (a/k/a "PG-13 Crew") become involved with gangs, drugs and violence. Considering the age and the harrowing accounts portrayed in the film, one begins to realize the impressionability of youth in general. Consequently, Patton-Spruill enables the viewer to understand the reasons behind the youth's decisions, and how easily they were trapped. However, getting them out alive is even harder, if not impossible. Patton-Spruill incorporates how the community can help these youth and provides hope for the future."
Gritty and Disturbing
Jennifer Christiansen | 02/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Squeeze was a great movie about three youths coping with life in Dorcester Mass, a less than nice part of Boston. I found it very realistic, and a scary portrayal of street life. It disturbed me very much. It was very insightful, and a must see for anyone interested in the inner cities."
