Explicit Ills; Another Crash type movie

March 5, 2009

OK. I’m  a fan of movies with several interconnecting plots such as Crash, when there done right. Some directors  try to do to much and it could end up being more confusing than anything.

I checked out Explicit Ills and I would definitely recommend seeing  this one. Written and directed of Mark Webber, Explicit Ills follows 4 interconnecting  relationships that revolve around drugs, love, and money in Philadelphia. Staring in the film is Seven Pounds supporting actress Rosario Dawson. Warning this movie is sad as hell, so if your already in a depressed mood I would advise waiting until your life is going a little better.lol.

Very good acting supported by 3 Academy awards this film is a must see. Here’s a short synopsis provided by Empire Movies:

explicit_illsThe film follows four inter-connecting stories revolving around love, drugs and poverty inPhiladelphia. Babo, an asthma ridden seven-year-old lives with his mother in the badlands of North Philly. His neighbor Demetri transforms himself into a well-read “smart” boy in order to get the girl. Michelle, a well-off art student is quick to fall into a drug induced love-affair with her dealer Jacob. Kaleef and Jill’s marriage is strained as they pursue their dreams of bringing “produce to the people” as their teenage son Heslin focuses on competing in the World’s Strongest Man competition. The lyrical and moving drama finds its core as all members come together in their fight for justice and self-discovery.
