    One of my favorite docs of all time. I have to disagree with Diego here; I think what's brilliant in this one is the way this film keeps seesawing your emotions back and forth. One moment you want to beg the cops on the screen to shoot him before any more civilians get hurt; the next moment you're despising the cops for the way they've tortured the hijacker and other street children through their lives. You see the pain the cops cause their victims and the pain the hoodlums cause their victims; far from making excuses for anybody, I'd say this one indicts everybody. The blend is just devastating. 7 years 6 months ago

    Criminals are criminals no matter their upbringing, he had the oportunity to change and still ended up destroying inoccent people's lives. This is what happens in a country where impunity doesn't exist and allows criminals to keep doing these things because they know the government and human rights will protect them. If you think criminals are victims of society, and cops who risk their lives everyday to keep you safe are abusing their power by treating these criminals excessively, you're an idiot. 5 months 2 weeks ago
