Incredible performances throughout
My only complaint was for whatever reason the dialogue was super low on HBO Max. Kaluuya deserves an Oscar for his performance. Up until I saw this, I was sure Riz Ahmed for Sound of Metal would win, Kaluuya topped that performance. If this doesnt make you think about how far the US has yet to come w.r.t. race relations, then I cant help you.
