(kr) wrote: Chop Shop has that gritty, indie feel to it... probably because it IS an indie film. Written and directed by Ramin Bahrani who seems to have a great eye for capturing various slices of that great social experiment that is NYC. His prior works include Man Push Cart, the story of an immigrant who makes his way by being a street vendor. Here Ramin trains his camera microscope cinema verite' style on the industrial area that abuts the old Shea Stadium. Full of small wherehouse spaces with roll up doors that are home to row after row of car repair shops; all dealing in cheap parts which may or may not have come into their inventory by suspicious means. At the core of the film is Alejandro (Alejandro Polanco), a young ethnic hustler who "procures parts", and works the street, ushering prospective buyers towards his bosses' shop. On the side he is learning the craft of auto repair, especially painting and bodywork. His boss allows him to live in a small loft room at the back of the shop, and once he has secured the room, he makes contact with his semi-homeless older sister and invites her to share the room. We make discoveries about the sister, and see that family is very important to Ale. It is his dream to restore an old Roach Coach so his sister can cook and make a decent living instead of being the fetch it girl for another coach owner. The acting throughout seems very natural and there is a certain gritty, real feeling to the action, as if the camera was simply allowed to follow the characters around and record the day-to-day happenings. This is both a plus and a minus, as it gives the aforementioned realism but also allows for some editing issues. Still, the net result is satisfying and I felt invested in the character of Ale who keeps on keeping on in spite of a broken dream. When the film abruptly ends with no resolution you get the feeling that the intention was to let the viewer have a peek into the lifestyle around the chop shop before you hear the clanking of the metal door coming down and keeping you on the outside. Welcome to third world America.

(de) wrote: So overwrought and unrelievedly grim that it comes close to playing like a parody of teenage angst movies. Its purposeful lack of appeal on virtually all aesthetic levels makes it a bit unwatchable at times, which, since that's the point, puts it somewhere between a masterpiece and complete mess.

(us) wrote: It's actually a pretty good sequel. It doesn't live up to the original, but it gets pretty close. It continues the story in a somewhat believable way and I enjoyed watching it. The main thing about this movie that takes away from the experience is that it is super predictable. I knew how this movie was going to play out a few minutes in. There are some twists and turns but nothing that made me think there would be a different end result. It's a good sequel overall but it doesn't really have the same effect as the first. It's more or less the same type of movie but more predictable.
