Review: 'Lost Angels' documents struggles on L.A.'s Skid Row
"Lost Angels: Skid Row Is My Home" is an absorbing, at times heartbreaking look at several former and current denizens of downtown L.A.'s Skid Row, a 50-block area that one observer here respectfully calls "an open asylum for the mentally ill." As the documentary's director Thomas Napper makes clear, the neighborhood is that and so much more.
