"THE DIRECTOR DIONCIEL ARMSTRONG DID A GREAT JOB. WE HAVE BEEN SHOWING STREET LIFE TO OUR TROUBLED YOUTH AT OUR CHURCH. IT'S NOT A KIDS MOVIE, BUT THIS IS A MUST SEE FOR TEENS. I ALSO LEARNED ALOT THROUGH THIS FILM. IT HELPED ME UNDERSTAND WHAT MY TEENS (ALL BLACK CHILDREN) ARE GOING THROUGH. GOOD WORK. DIONCIEL ARSMTRONG, I'LL BE LOOKING FOR FUTURE WORK. IGUESS YOUR NAME SAYS IT ALL.
GOD BLESS OUR FAMILIES AND KIDS."

"The producer of this documentary seems to have become lost in the culture he is purportedly studying.
This film falls victim to this fate with it's blatant pornographic images. After 25 years of providing health services in a public health profession, I would not show this film to any audience. The director must judge the character and motivation of those volunteering to be interviewed.
An adept film maker can cull out or skillfully develop the testimony of those who are simply "acting out".
The sole motivation of some volunteer subjects is nothing more than a subtle but seditious effort to "cleanse their soul" in public. They may be hoping desperately to rebuild a severely compromised, if even existent, sense of self esteem.
In many more cases though, I suspect, it is just an attempt to seduce the audience under the illusion there is some legitimacy to their soul-less lives."
