Tangerine (2015)

Director: Sean Baker. Cast: Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, Karren Karagulian. 88 min. Rated R. Comedy/Drama.

This is a comedy (supposedly filmed with an iPhone) about the world of transgender prostitutes, pimps, drug dealers and junkies, set in those seediest corners of the planet called Hollywood and Sunset Blvd. During some moments, the filth of the paraded concepts was so overpowering, for the very first time I felt nauseated watching a movie - let alone think any of it was funny. But 24 hours later, I'm still thinking about these characters. And doesn't any movie that induces such a strong reaction deserve a Mojo? Try it for yourself; it'll be a contemplative movie experience you can't ignore.
