"Bombay Beach" follows three residents (or families) that live in the area. One family has lived on the fringes of society for many years, coming up on the wrong side of the law and child welfare services as often as not. They, however, are attempting a new leaf. One participant is an elderly hard-living gentleman who thrives in this impoverished community--reflecting back on his early years, but relishing every day he has left. He is very popular as a purveyor of convenient smokes. And the third subject is a high school student who escaped the gangland dangers of Los Angeles to have a more solid and safer start. He dreams of utilizing his experiences as the star of the small local football team to capture NFL glory.Read more ›
focuses on less area and really delves into a couple of specific families. It's not a bad
sideline for those with interest in SS but not exactly what I was hoping for.
I've seen it five times already, which may seem excessive, but every time I am awed by the storytelling, whisked away by the melody and grounded in the lives of these characters in this place called Bombay Beach.
