I watched the trailer some time ago and was excited about this movie. Initially, I thought of it as the typical police brutality awareness movie. I can assure you, this is not that. This is a fresh take on the cycle of violence as it pertains to the black community. Still, this film is not biased at all. All arguments are given their time to sit with the audience as the movie goes on. This movie is not for the faint of heart and it might piss you off. But, it sticks true to the realism that is in the world today. This is not trauma porn at all--merely a story about a grieving father roped into the cycle of violence. This film explores this journey through those around him as well. I recommend!
And to think that people still don't want to make a connection between the injustices that Black Americans have been complaining about for years and the people that stormed the capital. These terrorists weren't just from the back woods of the south. They were also CEOs, managers, supervisors, health care workers, people who had served in the armed forces and POLICE OFFICERS from across the United States many of whom have since been arrested, fired or otherwise. THESE are the people that are at the root of all of the complaints...
This was written & executed very well. This is the realty we live in. No need to create a fairy tail ending. It’s sad that the color of your skin can dictate how you are treated by the cops, the health care system, the government system, etc. And yet so many still deny the differences. Some still have so much hate & fear of losing that “superior power”. SMH different decade, same story & same fight.
This was some straight-up BS - some realistic BS! I could watch the news for this - BOOOOOOOO Nate Parker BOOOOOOOOO Spike Lee - we all knew what was going to happen when he walked out we KNEW. WHAT is the point him??? UGHHHHHHH???? Another monument to black male weakness. Great. The ONE time we get anything close to a win is in this movie, and you give us BS so that "the world can see" this is some bull.
The viewer should applaud the sheer bravery of a movie like this, but I fear it will be (negatively) criticized into oblivion, just like Birth of a Nation by Nate Parker. Take time and watch it for yourself, and come to your conclusion. I purchased this film -- we need more raw truth in American cinema.
Beautiful movie. Beautiful cast. Excellent Spike Lee touch. Excellent writing. Excellent filmography. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT. This movie is powerful. Not necessarily your typical “young black boy gets shot by cops” movie. The dialogue is amazing and touching and moving. I, as a black female police officer see both sides of the spectrum. I see both arguments being made. This movie is definitely one I will be recommending. Kudos to the writers, director, and anyone else who took part in this piece of art.
Every family in America needs to watch this film especially after the bias that was shown during the revolt at the Captial. This was an excellent depiction of what this country is and how far we still have to go.
