Editorial Reviews

Living on the dangerous, drug-infested streets of downtown L.A for nine days and nights, Grammy award winner Pras Michel goes undercover as a homeless person. The entire time he and his crew are incognito, using surveillance cameras. Skid Row is the compelling life-changing story of Pras learning how to fend for himself on the streets of Los Angeles while discovering the dark, volatile and very human side of Skid Row.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! July 15, 2008
Format:DVD
I wasn't sure how I would like this film. There are parts that are tough to watch and I found myself wanting to turn away. Yet that's exactly what we middle-class folks do when it comes to the homeless! LA's problem is much worse than I thought, however you can find this situation in most cities around the world. Drugs, mental illness and a society that just doesn't give a darn feed into the problem! I live in a big city and see these types on a regular basis. You learn to ignore them. However this film gives amazing insight into their plight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing.... March 27, 2008
Format:DVD
One of the most real and intense looks into the tender underbelly of LA's skidrow. Pras Michael and executive producer Jeremy Goldstein should be honored for their unique vision and relentless courage shown in the filming of this project.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skid Row October 16, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Eye-opening documentary about homelessness in Los Angeles. From a bird's-eye view, grammy winner Pras gives a first-hand account of a situation of violence and desperation within a forgotten population of American society.

4.0 out of 5 stars rising problem; increasing solutions October 12, 2008
Format:DVD
"most" people who have no homes have NOT "made their bed" -- the growing face of homelessness since the early 80's is families. just because Skid Row shows homelessness in one large pocket of this nation's homeless population, it doesn't mean that's the "typical" image. In fact, the average age of a homeless person in America is now 9 years old! [...] to find out if your city, county, state or region has a ten-year plan to end & prevent homelessness & find out how you can help. Homelessness affects an entire nation. It will take an entire nation to affect homelessness. ANYone can become homeless. The causes are as varied as anything else. It's not all on the individual. When a Community doesn't offer safe, decent housing that's affordable to all the incomes in it or doesn't offer jobs that pay wages that people can live on ... When various businesses, practices, etc. exploit people & work to take their income or trap them in debt, etc. ... When policies at the local, state and/or federal level tie the hands of those who offer help or hold down those who need help ... ALL of it works together to contribute to the poverty and homelessness in our nation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Skid Row March 1, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Skid Row is a teaching tool for all disciplines.It brings the question to your home "Lord what can I do about this situation happening in the mist of me" ? That question is the one that will write our history as we can no longer pretend we didn't know this is happening on our watch. Thanks for bringing this film to the table, it was well done.

Luke 4:18, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised."

We all need to help and have compassion even for those who claim they want to live this life drug and alcohol abuse. Those people are captives of the enemy and need to be set free. If only we could educate those millionaires and billionaires of these situations and turn there hearts of stone back to flesh (address the problem instead of putting a band aid on it) ... More recovery/alcohol addiction homes need to be created, more deliverance ministries( many of these people actually are demonically possessed or oppressed)...We could all make a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Real July 5, 2008
Format:DVD
This is a brilliant little documentary made, as the reviewer above comments, by courageous and committed people. The plights of some of the street people who populate the film--black, white, brown--as well as the struggles of those who attempt to work with them, are sure to make viewers reconsider this ever-growing problem in our country. The film deserves much more recognition.
