    "I gather each sound you left behind and stretch them on my bed... each night I breath you and become high..." I fell in love withthis movie at first the tender age of 14 before I even knew what love truly meant, this movie touched me. The authenticty of the Black community and of Black love is represent in each and every scene... its deep... snaps fade to the background... even the soundtrack...mmm let me stop I'm getting caught up:)
