Three sentence movie reviews: Tangerine
One of the purposes of movies is to take the viewer to a world they don’t know and this movie did that for me, given that my life experience includes no contact with transgender prostitutes. There were things that were hard to watch in this movie, but it’s brimming with so much force of life that it made the hard things easier. Also, it makes Los Angeles look spectacular, colors popping and light flattering even in the rundown part of the city these characters inhabit.
Where watched: Laurelhurst Theater with S. North.
The movie is a lie. LA doesn’t look spectacular. Lol. Good job by the cinematographer though. I suppose I knew that transgender prostitutes are a thing, but I never really thought about it. You’re right, that’s an important part of movies like this, to make people think.
