Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Chop Shop

A gritty drama shot in a neorealist style, Chop Shop (2007) is a slice of life look at Ale, a 12 year old street orphan living and surviving in Queens, New York. Critically acclaimed at the time of its release, it's also the second film of Ramin Bahrani whose latest film has just hit screening services. In this episode, we dive into the style of the movie, particularly its heartwarming yet difficult storyline and the use of non-actors in playing the roles.
