Excellent Film
22 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Minority," is an excellent perspective on what the African-American experience is like in modern day America. Cloaked in humor, this film is masterful in its depiction of true racism. "The Minority," has a layered effect. As you watch the film there is a lot to laugh about at the beginning. "The Minority," has many layers, but as the layers peel off, the raw reality of what the movie is truly about begins to sink in and the unsettling voice of consciousness sneaks up on you. "Is this really how it is?" "This is exactly how it is." Halfway through the movie, the subject matter at hand suddenly is no longer comical; as a matter of fact it becomes down right painful. Dwayne Buckle does an excellent job creating his first feature length film,and the promise of a great future awaits his arrival.
