The movie was different!
I loved it!
Lowriders may spell too much out with obvious dialogue, and it may veer a bit too easily toward melodrama. But there?s an earnestness and a fundamental truth to this familial saga?as well as an appealing, low-budget scrappiness?that consistently make it hum.
A dynamic glimpse of contemporary Los Angeles funneled into an old-fashioned coming-of-age saga, Lowriders isn?t always persuasive, but it has plenty of heart.
