    The movie was mostly shot on two difficult locations: The streets of East L.A., and inside Folsom Prison. It knows these worlds. The language, the clothes, the attitudes, are all shown with the understated conviction of a director who is sure of his material.

    Gut-wrenching, brutal, and powerful, American Me is not enjoyable in the conventional sense, but nevertheless stands out as one of the year's most impressive purely dramatic offerings.

    At first it was impacting to me, but now I've seen far more better documentaries, and the acting is not good either, I t was a good try but I'll say that I found this movie totally unnecessary. Full Review »
