    WOW i didn’t know there was a movie in which every sequence was connected by a person one after another!!! i started watching the movie and after 10 minutes i knew when they gonna change subject and scenes. My faavorite shot was when there was a guy in a pickup truck telling people that he was giving out guns then the shot changes to a car right next to him where theres a bunch of people with diferent cameras and also a radio dancing and triping . it was a nice shot then a guy trows the camera and you see the perspective of the camera flying and spining. They manipulate what they want you to see so nice. Theres was a part where you actualy see the boom microphone in the screen i dont know if any of you notice but i looked very weird.

    I agree with you Jaymar. I started to watch the film and I took a brake after watching the first 15 minutes because I already knew what was going on. They were changing characters after letting you see what his or her problem was. My favorite part was when they make the first character change. The taxi leaves the man on a street, when his walking we hear a BOOM and a car accelerate. The men just take a look at the woman and then the jogging lady tells him to take a look at her id so they can call the family. He takes her purse and walks to the other side of the street. Later they let us know that the woman was killed by his own soon who is prepare when the police comes for him. That transition of characters let me know what the movie was about and that’s why I liked it.

    BTW: I didn’t notice the boom mic.

    There are few movies out there that are joined by a theme rather than an overarching narrative.
