"Blindspotting" by Rafeal Casal
20 March 2018 | by julianxl-52803See all my reviews

"Blindspotting" follows the story of an ex-convict living out his last month of probation. And with his childhood friend regularly getting into trouble, staying clean proves difficult. But after witnessing something terrible, he carries on, walking the streets of Oakland, playing the same scene in his mind over, and over again. Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal create the perfect friendship in this film, showing their support for one another, even through the hard times. This movie showcases amazing cinematography, dialogue, and humour; deals with the topic of racial tension and shows how each character bears that in their own way
