Trivia

The police announcement to disperse, made to the crowd of protesters, is done using a Long-Range Acoustic Device (LRAD), which uses uncomfortably-high decibel sound to break-up crowds. Its piercing ringing sound would be much, much higher than depicted, however. See more »

Great Material, disjointed
19 March 2019 | by jramalhoSee all my reviews

The film starts out well enough, the acting is good and the story nuanced. The starting material and development are powerful, if predictable (nothing wrong with that). Perhaps to counter this, the option was to consecutively follow three different perspectives on the same events, three characters who hardly intersect, each with a clear "role" in terms of message. Although permanently unresolved issues are a key component of the film, in the end for me it felt disjointed due to this, three partial stories not necessarily making up a single great on. But I look forward for more from this director.
