This valentine to the cultural diversity that defines L.A. is a second-tier Altman (or even Paul Thomas Anderson)a broad, accessible comedy that contrasts four large and dynamic families residing on the same street: Latino, black, Jewish, and Asian.
A refreshing surprise to watch this series of DVD\u2019s.\nAll stories based on true events with brilliant acting spread throughout this series, by actors like Jennifer Jason Leigh and Maury Chaykin. The not so well known actors do a convincing job to portray either victim\/or perpetrator. For example, the story of Anne Sluti-\u201CTaken In Broad Daylight\u201D. What a harrowing ordeal Anne went through, yet she had the presence of mind to leave notes behind so those searching for her, would find. An amazing woman.\nThe cinematography and lighting are completed in each film with excellent results.\nThe content can be very graphic and disturbing, and yet it could be educational to teach teens about choices \/consequences we all have.\nHighly recommended.
