Critics reviews

Two artistically brilliant and criminally underrated films dealing in race and class consciousness, while not sacrificing one iota of art or entertainment. In addition, Blindspotting features one of the best buddy relationships in quite a long time while Uptight as a funhouse mirror sequence that is required viewing.

This movie, which was written by Mr. Diggs and Mr. Casal, has an energetic-to-the-point-of-boisterous style. Its lively frequency is embedded in the writing, bolstered by Carlos López Estrada’s direction, and kept buoyant by the performers. This particular aspect of the film makes it exciting to watch, but can also be confounding.

The gentrification of Oakland is a recurring theme, but the film pivots on Miles’s hotheaded behavior, for which Collin pays the price. Yet the conflicts are schematic, the characters are thinly sketched, and Diggs displays his hip-hop artistry as if stepping upstage.
