Starring one of my fave actors, robert downey jr, who plays Steve Lopez and jamie foxx as nathaniel ayers. A true story based on the book by Lopez about a homeless schizo musician who refuses to be helped. Lovely movie, and such is life that nothing turns out perfect but then again a perfect life is subjective. Not all exceptionally talented musicians were meant to be performers - the same way not all performers are neccessarily talented musicians. And seeing life from a homeless person's point of view, never would think that they actually take pride in living on the streets. That they actually have a choice to live in but most CHOOSE to live out - is this really so? I recall bits of seeing this in LA when i was younger, they seemed to be decent people most of them except they're all living in boxes. The touchy part for me was when Ayers puts his instrument away in his shopping cart, arranges his sleeping place amongst roaming roaches and rats, rests his head on a smelly looking pillow and says quietly, 'I hope you sleep well, Mr Lopez, I hope the world sleeps well' and dozes away.
Makes me feel... guilty.
