Tangerine (2015)

Director: Sean Baker

Stars: Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, Karren Karagulian, James Ransone, Josh Sussman

It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra, embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity.

This movie is like watching one from back in the early 90's. You know the great indie movie from then. It is an homage to that era. If you know those movies, then when you watch this movie you will see some much of that creation from those movies. You will know what I mean.

The acting in the movie is not bad for what it was. I mean, these actors are new to the scene, so they did their best. The flow of the movie was a bit rocky in sections, but the story ironed it out. The story was pretty simple. They could have turned this movie into a short film instead of a feature length movie.

This is a pretty good movie to watch. It will not be for everyone, but for those that love the old indie movie, you will love this movie. Enjoy.
