Moving at the Speed of Life, We are Bound to Collide with Each Other

Very well done. Great acting (a couple of bad nose jobs ... sck), great script, and casting (for the most part). Why does Bullock and Newton play white women? I guess no top White actress would sign on to the project. Hmmm...

Here's Capone review at Ain't It Cool There's also been good reviews at IMDB.

I find this movie really deep, and hope everyone gets out to see it ...

I agree. I'd love to get others' views about this. In particular I have heard some black folks talk about some negative images/messages involving the black characters - essentially - turning their back on their blackness etc.

Honestly, the only characters that I didn't like were Ludicris's and Larenz Tate's characters. They were hypocrites, or at least Luda's character was at the beginning. He had to complain about being stared at and being labeled a criminal, yet he carried a firearm and robbed some folks...and he wondered why he's labeled as a criminal. Damn, he might as well write himself a warrant. bang

I think that was the point. It like brothas that wear African symbols but sell drugs to their people. They wear Malcom X shirts but kill their own people. They talk about what Whites do to us but are doing worse.

I loved the movie also.

Agreed!! If you haven't yet, see it this weekend. The final scene with Ludacris is one of redemption. You'll like it, if not LOVE it!

That was meant (I believe) to make you think. Many of us have beliefs that are not always (sometimes, but not all the time) manifested in our behavior. Also, it could be interpreted as an example of "damned if you do, damned if you don't"; being damned if you don't could lead less determined people to take the easier route.

I agree with MidLifeMan:

And, isn't that what they do to us to let us know who has the power for REAL.
