Not out-of-place in Vancouver Downtown Eastside, about 5 murdered prostitutes in a low-rent road, yet it's not about the murderer or the murders, but about how a community gets together and heals itself. ALL dialogues/lyrics taken verbatim from the locals; actors did a very effective sing-song of the lyrics like Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady. Especially effective are the media Greek chorus. Film starts with dark blue/grey palette and explodes into a riot of colours near the end.

If you like musical theater, this one's for you.
Not for me...the singing, speaking format was too strange. Fast forwarded 15 mins and stopped after that.

After a series of murdered prostitutes ended up being found in a neighborhood in Ipswich, the neighbors of the area were interviewed and asked to give their thoughts on what had happened. The film is a musical docudrama of the exact words the interviewees gave, set to a semi-musical theme. Kind of bizarre, and horrifying, but not in the ways you would expect. it's the "innocent" neighbors who see themselves as the victims here, but in interviews, their true colors come through to expose prejudice and ugliness from even those you would have least expected it. All in all, an interesting film with a deep message. Surprised that I would be defending this, as I generally always despise musicals, but this one is different. For sure, it's an off the wall kind of film, so be forewarned of that, but worth it, in my opinion.

We watched only the first 10 minutes. Got fed up with the weird 'documentary' style. Who knows, maybe it gets better.

True Crime plus true testimony makes this a musical like no other.

It is a musical not a murder mystery!!? Still, I watched it till the end. I don't mind musicals but I didn't expect this movie to be one (judging by the cover it looked like a drama).

Totally disgusted. I waited in line for this fake. Everything about it suggests a murder mystery. NOT! It's a musical. When some guy on the tv started singing the news, I shut it off.

Not what I expected! This is a documentary musical about a mass murderer. I did watch all of it though because it was strange.

I mistakenly thought this was going to be a mystery, about solving who the killer was. Instead it's a musical about what it's like to live in the neighbourhood where the killings were taking place. Not my kind of thing.
