You have to be a maniac to give this one star
15 June 2019 | by m-hulotSee all my reviews

Don't let the pigs set the score! OWNED is a wonderfully told story that needs to be seen. But the troll farm downvoting this flick clearly doesn't want you to know about the injustices that continue to plague our communities and shape the unjust world that so many in the US are still victims of. It seems they would rather bury a fantastic film that sheds light on a problem than dealing with their prejudices and admitting that they benefit from a system that has made a permanent underclass of the most vulnerable in America. God bless the filmmakers and this film for speaking to power at this very tumultuous time.
