I wrote about Un Prophete back in the spring when I caught it in the theater, just after it swept the Cèsar Awards. Today it's on DVD, and is definitely worth watching if you missed it on the big screen. It's long--which was why I was happy to be part of a captive audience for the duration, but honestly it was so enthralling, I wasn't even hoping it would end (like I am in most films that go past the two hour mark).
In downtown Los Angeles, years ago, we met while working as editorial assistants at the Los Angeles Times. Today, we're still young, thirsty female journalists, on various paths of life (Chau in Silver Lake and Leslie in Brooklyn), here to deliver our best finds from this city and beyond, via the BEAT of young los angeles. Get comfortable and stay a while. Check back often!
