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.
Barry Jenkins' directorial debut is the antithesis of a Spike Lee film when dealing with race. It comes not from a place of pure hate and bigotry, but a place of rational observation and contemplation. I love the intimacy of the film and its rugged cinematography, showing true promise that would be fulfilled in Jenkins' follow-up, Moonlight.
"Why must I feel like that? Why must I chase the cat?" I'm not sure she's worth it. She doesn't really bring much to the table other than being beautiful. You have to keep entertaining her. That's just the way she was written. Love the muted colors. Felt like I had a hangover.
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??
