Serious Jest:  (Worth Watching)  Sometimes, there’s no point to a film, other than to show you a particular point of view, or a particular walk of life…sometimes that’s okay.  This film gives you a 15-minute snapshot of a side of Los Angeles with which you may be unfamiliar.  The script is compelling, its actors are convincing, and it hits you like a random act of violence: hard and fast.
