I wasn't sure how I felt at first. But I liked it. Emotional and unusual.

Okay, reminded me of a Dan Bern song.

compelling, moving, but slam-style delivery has become almost a rule of performance, formulaic, descended from Patty Smith and laminated 20 years ago in Nuyorican venues. Don't know if he's even heard of Patty Smith or the strictures of fast and hot 3 1/2 min. time limit (one reason for the 'frenetic' pace) slam night spoken word, but his imagery and approach are so original, the presentation should be, too. ...

Factual, but quite depressing!

It is has a lo-Fi feel the image and the sound quality, It's raw but wonderful like a Daniel Johnston song. It reminded me of it a lot. The sounds seem so random at first, but as the film goes it just makes sense. Creative, Lyrical, poetic, passionate, Raw... if I can put a little enumeration here! ;o)

Utterly brilliant. An incredibly emotional journey, one wrought with pain, longing, helplessness, fear. The frenetic pace of a poet on slam night, rhythmic, clawing, desperate and raw. 7 minutes of honest pure emotion.
