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.

Cost: $3.00
Where watched: Laurelhurst Theater with S. North.

  1. 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.
