What are people saying?

  • Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film The Corner

    a temporary rating on the four episodes I have available. if I didn't know so many of the actors, I might've even thought it was the documentary it pretends to be at times. T.K. Carter absolutely deserved an award for his performance as a nearly muted, and invisible citizen, powerless to change the community, his beloved. AND KHANDI ALEXANDER, a different lady every other day and she is absolutely sincere every time.

  • Renton47's rating of the film The Corner

    An overly faithful adaptation of the book - but Simon was still cutting his teeth at this point. Has the feel of a theatre production due to Dutton's textbook direction and some (strong) stagey performances. The angle of Dutton/Simon as exploitative journalist was underdeveloped and intrusive to format of the show. That said, the emotions + pathos still deliver, esp. in the tragic final episode.
