Fantastic, easily
4 July 2020 | by scout-19481See all my reviews

This movie moved me. I laughed, I cried... it made me think about my Boys State. Shout out to Steven Garza, if there's a protagonist I want everyone to know it's him. This is the best doc I've seen seen Black Fish. Watch it if you can.
