Fresh: Stand Clear of the Closing Doors becomes dedicated to showing us everything millions of people glance at each day but don't actually regard.
Imitation of Life…
People allow themselves to get too busy too blind too focused on themselves often scared to get involved/report things timely - to tuely see a lost lamb out of place.
Real, slice-a life film about NYC!
The kid can be annoying in his child-like behavior, but this film is worth watching if you want the real New York City & its subway life. Get outta Manhattan & see this movie! Grade: A
Magical & Scary Adventure
As dark as this move sometimes becomes, there is this magically gift that always seems to shine. There is a magic viewpoint of an acute and highly intelligent "world" in which Ricky must attempt to navigate as he becomes lost in actual reality which is seemingly outside of his won scope.
There is something truly revelatory when the viewer realizes that Ricky's "limited" world is not as skewed from reality. That is to say, he may not always be able to understand or communicate, but he does navigate.
