This is obviously a straight up drama, but I actually enjoyed it. It's well acted and deals with pretty realistic 'daily life' situations. In particular I was quite taken with character Freddy and his struggle with creating his unique cinematic art, while also dealing with borderline uncontrollable anger issues. And it's actually Freddie's issues that play an important part in the film and its overall message
Ambitious and surprising. Fantastic cast really holds it all together. Definitely worth a watch - if you are a patient viewer.
Slow burn? This is no burn. There might be an okay 30 min thriller in there. Unfortunately it runs a lot longer than 30 minutes.
Essentially, this is a movie about middle class white hipsters and their casual mistreatment of black bodies.
