Absolutely Fabulous!
14 March 2004 | by (LA, Cali) – See all my reviews

Saw this @ the 12th Pan African Film & Arts Festival in Los Angeles @ the Magic Johnson's Theatre... and LOVED IT!!! "...Bones" was funny, poignant, heartbreakingly sad & erotic (in a fun/nasty sort of way)... I felt the Hill's portrayal of no focus w/ his photography & h is pain & sadness & deep, intense love... what a great job. The film offers a most realistic portrayal of a situation that many men & quite a few women have no doubt experienced-quite realistic & very much "oh-no-I-know-this-is-not-happening-to-me". When it plays in your neighborhood, GO SEE IT!
