“Oh, yes, I love the movies. Pictures about passion and sorrow are nice.”
I love art.
There were so many shots I loved in this film. My favorite Nicole Kidman performance. And Lauren Bacall’s line deliveries are inimitable.
+ Lauren Bacall and Nicole Kidman’s dinner scene when they were having a conversation while eating side by side at the restaurant with no eye contact, to me, that’s cinema.
The star and a half is for Zendaya and for the fact that this was shot in Carmel, CA. But man what a waste. This was exhausting and I’m glad it’s over.
From the beginning of the movie all I kept thinking about was how instead of making mac and cheese for Malcolm, Marie shoulda just took the knife and stab him multiple times so he can shut the fuck up.
I knew it was gonna be shit when I saw…
“A Regina King Film”
Damn right! An incredible directorial debut along with outstanding performances and a great adapted screenplay.
The recreated shots of those iconic photographs of Cassius Clay were so beautiful.
I also loved how the film showcased Malcolm X’s love for photography. Imma need me Rolleiflex camera, been wanting one for so long now.
And of course, the film ends with Leslie Odom Jr. singing his cover of Sam Cooke’s timeless classic, A Change is Gonna Come. *wipes tear*
