Kritikeranmeldelser

One particularly gripping and frantically shot sequence features churchgoers brought to tears and delirious convulsions by The Emotions’ rendition of “Peace Be Still.” At the concert, Stuart’s use of the zoom lens isolates women’s curves and intricate Black Power handshakes from across the Coliseum, as if studying a new breed with a new language.
