mpho3's rating of the film Mother of George

"Gurira and De Bankolé give electrifying performances .... Young’s cinematography is sensual and hypnotic w/ dramatically shallow DOF and strikingly off-kilter compositions. The poetic visuals create a disorienting sense of being at once immersed in the characters’ world and kept at a distance." - K. Jones, Film Comment. A striking soundtrack and vibrant color palate round off this slow burning but haunting work.
