Donovan Dorrance’s review published on Letterboxd :
When you’re a white director, maybe triple double check about using blackface in your movie as punishment. The irony this short goes for is amateurish to say the least.
This felt so problematic I’m not sure I can unpack it well enough. Stereotypes on stereotypes. Hate speech and hate crimes to get a rise out of an audience. Revenge to make the audience bloodthirsty. Blackface.
This felt like it was made by someone not woke whose favorite film is American History X. Looks like there’s a feature-length version now too. Maybe it will redeem itself.
