Movie Reviews

Come for the movie, stay for the music
The Irish Geisha | City of Fallen Angels, CA | 09/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie deserves some recognition. It's a great film that mixes music and story in a lyrical, interesting and compelling way. Although it's not a suspense movie, the characters are strong enough and sympathetic enough that you truly want to know what's going to happen.

The best part of this movie is the mixing of the music into the context of the movie. It's really interesting how rap is used in a narrative, lyrical and musical way to add depth and body and interest to both the story of the film and the characters.

Well done, I look forward to seeing more movies like this."
