Wire fans should like this,
This review is from: The Corner (HBO Mini Series) [DVD]  (DVD)
I have just finished watching The Wire and thought it was an excellent series. When I read that quite a lot of the actors in that series had also appeared in The Corner, I decided to get that and have enjoyed it as well.
The Corner mainly focuses on the lives of a small group of individuals and the battle that some of them have with their drug addictions, but does contain some lighter, funnier moments as well.
This is a sort of smaller scale, drawing board/embryonic type version of what would later be The Wire. Those of you who have seen The Wire, will notice a lot of the actors who were in that series and they appear here often playing totally different characters than what they did in that. Not mentioning any names, but you will even see a well known drug dealer working in a shoe shop lol.
The number I managed to recognise reached well into double figures...see how many you can spot.
