(gb) wrote: Chop Shop strikes a chord so peculiar from any another movie I've seen before, you have to blink. Maybe twice. By using the actual community for acting background with the leads Ale and Isamar brought in, it feels like an actual encounter. The shots have no apparent style at the beginning because it's gradually settling in you, even if you're convinced from the first scene of Ale's ambition, not desperation. Ambition is the wrong word. I guess that's the point, it feels like ambition when you see a 12 year old kid exercising a work ethic that makes me feel ashamed of my own self. But, he's a kid who's never gone to school. Already gradually losing interest in "playing" like most 12 year olds do. He works for an auto-repair shop under the owner Rob, who doesn't treat him like a kid, but respectfully as another hard-worker who just happens to be a kid. He lends him a shack to live in in the shop. He has more of a sense for responsibility than his own older sister (or his age for that matter), such as when he asks her, unconvinced, if she knows how to close the shop when she offers to. The shack has a refrigerator, microwave, bed and this kid is ecstatic to finally show it to his sister. Some other director would try to make an emotion like that heart-breaking. Ramin makes this world personal to these characters and gives us a sense so much more appropriate than simply telling us we take what we have for granted. The credit is not due only in part to Alejandro's gifted performance. Maybe moreso the way the scenes play out and what's picked specifically with the cinematography for us to focus on from all of it. For a movie so engrossing in details of the chop shop community, it works because it shows us normal day after normal day for these people rather than being smothering in default film tactics and forced scenes that try too hard to give empathy. Why it's never boring but drew me in is honestly beyond me. I have theories, but they're all rants. Something to be discussed with fellow movie buffs if only I had friends that loved movies as much as I do (not called Transformers). The important aspect is we're given characters we care about without the trashy subplots, unconvincing dialogue, and fabricated motif's. It works because it flows as it should. And for an unfortunately short running time, I still don't know what else more I could ask for. It does have an undertone to it that will push or pull, depending on the viewer and I can't imagine it being a thin line. While it's not the best movie I've ever seen, it uses the basic tools to get across such a subtle, important message so few with adequate access to those tools are capable of.
