Oh my. If you are looking for entertainment, fast-pacing, cinematic wonders, you won't get it here. But if you are looking for meaning, wow. This is a peak into the world of urban African-American poverty. It's a documentary style, yet it's not a documentary, though it's based on a true story. The main character, though flawed, is a good person - father, friend, mate, etc.. But he's poor, and all that goes with that. Why does he act out just around authority figures? Why does he throw away his drugs? Why does he lie to his mother, wife, etc.? See the film. Not much happens till the last 20 minutes, but it's definitely worth it for the insight
"I've waited for "Fruitville Station" to come to this theatre and I was wondering when it will show. Now it did and the waiting was worth it. The movie centers on the life of Oscar Graqnt on the day before he was killed by police. this movie detailed his final day of life. This is a powerful movie that is so strong, you can feel it. If you saw that incident on television or you never heard of it or you never watch the news you need to see this movie. It's worth you time.
