Great story, great acting, great directing
4 January 2018 | by degourdSee all my reviews

I didn't expect much from this movie but I was blown away by this film. The acting, story and directing were top notch. A truly gorgeous film by RZA. Azealia Banks also brought her A game. Definite must watch!
