A Hollywood movie that's not afraid to tackle the race issue - head on. From the writer of Million Dollar Baby comes this incendiary multi-strand drama in the style pioneered by Robert Altman in such films as Nashville and Short Cuts.
Over two days the lives of a police detective, drugged-out mother and thieving son, racist cop, Persian immigrant family and many more, interweave as they try to negotiate the melting pot that is LA. With a host of big names: Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser this is not glossy entertainment, but a provocativev and intelligent exploration of modern America.
hyper-articulate, often breathtakingly intelligent and always brazenly alive, though not for the fainthearted
David Denby, The New Yorker
