    ★★★½

    This documentary is great at displaying Chicano and hip hop culture in and around Los Angeles and the intersection between Black and Brown folks around music and other art forms. But like many people have said, it is very surface level. It really is just fascinating images of Estevan and Cartoon's twenty-five years in the art scene.

    I recently had the opportunity to experience this film in theater. I can't explain how hype and surreal it felt. This movie still gives me chills and hypes me up. The soundtrack is iconic and the intensity of the movie is palpable. Vin Diesel's breakout role makes it 5* alone.

    This movie is perfect in every way. It was like the first time I watched Saving Private Ryan and it makes sense that this movie was a direct influence to that film. Even a specific Vin Diesel scene looked like it came out of this movie. Or the 2010 remake of 13 Assassin being inspired by Kikuchuyo stabbing 5 swords into the dirt to fight a larger crowed. I love how we meet every character, a stranger, and as we learn about them we feel closer to them. A masterpiece for sure.
