DIRECTOR – 0

CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –
1) Kwame Ture powerful speech.
2) Great promising first-hour.

 
Cons –
1) This is not a movie. It’s one of the events in the series of post-Trump USA. Inherently biased and one-sided.
2) Literally juxtaposing the events of the 1970s with real-footage of 2017 is not the job of the director. The viewers don’t need to be spoon-fed.

Stans: Wow, what a shithole. You live here?
Noland: Oh, no. No. This is my summer home. I winter in the Riviera. The schools are so much nicer there. And the men… Ooh, la, la!
