I saw in the credits it said "Thanks to everyone who bought a shirt" which leads me to believe they printed female director shirts like her "Loden" one. I know I'm late to the party, but does anyone know where I can get one of these second hand??
It's interesting at parts, but I couldn't get over the fact how selfish the woman character was in the film. She didn't seem so sad, dull, isolated, depressed, etc, yet she cheats on her boyfriend who's in London for his work. There isn't a moment she feels bad for what she;s doing. She seems like having the best time of her life.
Standard indie film with the odd nod to Godard. The photography is a bit irritating, as if Jenkins wasn't sure if he wanted to shoot in black-and-white or colour, so he went for something in between: a bland desaturated look. Race-obssessed (sometimes overtly so), as I expected, but an interesting watch all the while.
The debut film from the director of the acclaimed film Moonlight. A good start by Barry Jenkins which demonstrates the potential which cultivates in Moonlight. The film has an indie hipster vibe and has the obligatory bicycle rides to music that are a staple of this genre of film. The discussion of racial issues was interesting as they were between two persons of color. The desaturation of the picture was inventive.
since this more or less fits into one of my favorite subgenres, i.e. 'two people hanging out the whole time', i was pretty accommodating going in, which helped, since it took me a long time for me to come around to the heavy desaturation. the look did eventually work for me; in particular, it gains something in opposition after Jenkins has allowed certain scenes to take place with higher levels of color
