Not fast and furious. It's low and slow.

"Lowriders" is a solid redemption drama wrapped in a celebration of a car culture that frankly doesn't often get the respect and attention it deserves. With all the fast and furious stuff going on out there, it's a breath of fresh air to just appreciate the art of the low and slow.

Directed by Ricardo de Montreuil, set against the backdrop of the lowrider society in Los Angeles, Southern California, Gabriel Chavarria plays a talented young graffiti artist, Danny, who's caught between the lowrider world inhabited by his old school father (Demian Bichir) and his ex-con brother (Theo Rossi). Co-starring Eva Longoria, Melissa Benoist, and Tony Revolori.

Last year you had a look at L.A. from the much vibrant musical point of view through "La La Land," well, "Lowriders" gives you a different angle, and not the stereotypical gang turf war either. It's a clash between father and sons, about sins of the past and what they define as self-expression. I think the story blends the car culture and the family drama really well, the mix of those two makes sense in this film, and it speaks about the characters as well. There's plenty of conflict to go around, well-performed by all the actors involved.

You don't have to come from that background or from that neighborhood or you don't necessarily even have to know much about cars to be able to relate to "Lowriders." It's one of those situations in which you can always tell beauty when you see one, whatever shapes and sizes, and so that's the kind of art that "Lowriders" offers. A lot of people look down on graffities, some of their reasons may be justified, but a lot of the times they also don't take the time to truly look at the work and try to understand what it's trying to say. Street artists may not have the same reputation that gallery or exhibit artists do but that kind of freedom is what "Lowriders" puts a spotlight on. It's a film that does the culture justice.

It is not my world

A young street artist in East Los Angeles is caught between his father's obsession with lowrider car culture, his ex-felon brother and his need for self-expression. Lowriders is a film that i wanted to check out for some time now and mostly because of Melissa Benoist and honestly it did not disappoint, of course the film didn't go out without people criticizing it, it currently sits on a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes with a 67% on the Audience Score and a 5.7/10 here on IMDb and i highly disagree this isn't some kind of "Fast and the Furious" movie you won't see ridiculous car chase sequences or the Rock doing a spear in Vin Diesel it's not mindless fun it's actually a character study piece with some really great performances by Gabriel Chavarria (War for the Planet of the Apes), Theo Rossi (Luke Cage), Demian Bichir (Alien Covenant), Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) and Eva Longoria (Harsh Times) the entire Cast gives some pretty good performances and each of them has a vision for example Miguel wants to reunite with his sons Danny and "Ghost", Lorelai wants her art to be recognized and Gloria simply wants her family united once again. You do get to see the Lowriding world and it's cars and it's quite beautiful to say the least but you also get a pretty heavy drama about 2nd chances and fatherhood and most important about love and art. It does have it's flaws like it dragged in certain moments and i wish that things went a bit better for certain characters but overall i really enjoyed it a lot and i loved the style that it had this wasn't another car chase thriller or whatever you wanna call it it was actually a pretty decent and smart drama with some pretty good performances by a talented cast of actors. (8/10)
