Product description

The movie is set in Los Angeles over a two-day period and follows several unrelated characters as they come to terms with racial prejudice and crime. Some stories eventually overlap; others do not. The characters are presented honestly with all their flaws and a few redeeming qualities. The large ensemble cast is excellent; standouts are Don Cheadle as an honest police detective who has problems at home and at work, Sandra Bullock and Brendan Fraser as a wealthy couple who are carjacked, Matt Dillon as a racist cop who takes care of his ailing father, Terrence Howard as a TV director whose wife Thandie Newton is the victim of abuse, and Shaun Toub as a Persian shop who takes revenge into his own hands.

Although each scene is only a few minutes long and we quickly move to another vignette, the writing is so good that we really come to know and care about the characters. Just when I thought I knew what would happen next, I was surprised, and the whole film was riveting. The plot and dialogue are completely real; there's a constant feeling of tension and isolation, and an unusual and calming soundtrack ties everything together. I didn't expect to like this movie, but I did. It paints a grim picture of Los Angelinos, but it's so well written and the acting is so good that I found it very satisfying
