    Questions of authenticity aside, Damon Russell evinces a shrewd understanding of how to juxtapose the handheld camera's finite sightline with the bursts of chaos that suddenly invade it.

    This riveting account of thug life - the unglamorous, impoverished variety - is punctuated by constant profanity and undecipherable slang, occasional violence, steady drinking and weed or crack smoking.

    Bluff's portrait of street life has a grungy off-the-cuff realism that's only compromised by some obviously staged incidents.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the most gangsta film I've ever seen! It was so incredibly moving too, I thought it was going to have absolutely no emotion or deepness, but I was completely wrong. Snow had me in tears towards the middle of the movie... The parts with his son were kinda tough to watch, but I really was on the edge of my seat. If your a fan of documentary style movies, this is a must see. Expand

The film deals with a lot of things like dealing drugs, loss, and photo realistic reaction that someone will do. Believe it or not it have a lot of lore in it, trust me the main character's life is one to watch. Definitely something to watch with a buddy. Expand
