A step in the right direction for black cinema...
27 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have now seen BEST KEPT SECRET twice and it has truly captured my heart. The quality of the cinematography and direction draws you in from the first second. The actors continue to engage you with their movement and dialogue as they take you on a journey into their lives. Cassandra seeps with silent but powerful emotions of pain, hurt, frustration and betrayal when she discovers the secret.

I was truly impressed with how the story was told. It wasn't told in an exploitive manner but rather in a respectful, discrete way without compromising the ability to capture the viewers' attention.

I feel that it is a step in the right direction for black cinema. It shows that filmmakers of color can remove the shackles of the stereotypes placed on them and create an intelligent, artistic piece that retains timeless integrity.
