What are people saying?

  • mpho3's rating of the film The Last Angel of History

    An afrofuturist exploration "whose dense, almost chaotic weave of images and ideas offers space travel and science fiction as metaphors for the experience of the African diaspora. This is less a sociological study than an over-the-top fantasy, an improvisational riff on time and history asserting that the line between social reality and science fiction is an optical illusion." - Fred Camper, Chicago Reader
