Rick Famuyiwa United States, 2015

film_lies101's rating of the film Dope

Don't get wrong, there is some funny shit in here. The knocks against Macklemore and Will Smith had me rollin'. The PSA tacked on at the end came out of nowhere. Spent the entire running time trying break away from certain stereotypes (only the leads by the way) whilst at the same time, reinforcing others. Shout out to my man Vince Staples!
