10/10 Must watch
11 September 2017 | by nagatotechSee all my reviews

This is sincerely a riveting, creative film that I wasn't expecting. Something like this should probably only be in the theater due to how well it was acted, written, shot, etc. The writing and acting was better than anything from DC or Marvel. The film chronicles the lives of 4 people. The editing constructs a narrativizing of the film that sequences shots from each character's vantage. Thus, sometimes you'll see the same scene later in the film, just from a different angle. It subverts typical discretized boundaries of the gendered and sexed bodies that typically delimit the domain of the thinkable. For instance, one character performs porous modes of queer and straight relationship-having. However, the film doesn't stop to magnify this sexual exploration; no more than "Time" would pause itself in the real world due to your or my intermittent contact with queerness. This film also deracializes the knowable by being an all POC cast without "BEING AN ALL POC cast" – That is, POC centrality is an unmarked norm. Overall, this film has further intensified my adulation, enchantment, and attraction for the colored female structure. Specifically it indexes colored female vulnerability, authority, beauty, and intelligence very well and in a way that celebrates women of color. If you are a POC WATCH THIS FILM TO UNLEARN COLONIAL (what sociologist Pierre Bourdieu calls) "doxa" and "distinction". Your "taste" in for non-black/brown/Asian/Native casted films is NOT due to Universal interest and a NEED to NOT center people who look like you. Just because the cast comprises 3 gorgeous WOC and a mediocre looking man with pointers to blackness (yeah I'm hating!!…3 beautiful WOC should be clamoring over ME not his crusty/corny self!), doesn't necessitate it being a bad film, or a "black" film (read: "independent", "unprofessional", "poorly directed"). If you are a POC, don't complain about "OS-CUH So WYYYYTE!!" If you don't support, rate, review, and watch this film and other all POC main-casted films on this platform. Otherwise, "the Academy" is just regarding Blackend, Browned, Asianed, Indigeonized, cultural capital the same way WE regard ourselves (I'm not deprecating other POCs, I'm just stating a basic rational fact).
