Smooth-talking barrio Lotharios, sun-drenched streets, and hydraulic trucks named Suavecito weave in and out of Allison Anders’ MI VIDA LOCA. The lives of young Chicana gang members in Los Angeles’ Echo Park neighborhood provide backdrop for a rich, free-form storyline which shifts between various perspectives as each character narrates their own experience.
Raw and captivating, MI VIDA LOCA captures the romanticism and casual violence which paint the brutal reality of life in the barrio. From prison poetry correspondence to the sisterhood of heartbreak, and to the deaths of men who live their lives on the streets and the women who replace them, Allison Anders captures the drug-dealing, infighting, machismo, and unity with the deft poetry of honesty.
For Mousie, Sad Girl, La Blue Eyes, and the other girls, it isn’t just a crazy life, it is a life which doesn’t bother with dreams. (Jazmyne Moreno)
