Four stars

It’s refreshing to see trans folk and Armenian cab drivers represented in the movies.  A picture, more a window than a card trick; I feel these sun beat streets.  This corner of Wilshire and La Brea.  Miss Sin-Dee speed walks in heels past spent liquor bottles and dog turds.  Miss Alexandra blows Razmik in a car wash.  The frothing suds are a stand-in for spittle & semen.  It’s a Christmas movie.
