When They See Us

When They See Us ★★★★½

Jharrel Jerome is incredible. I hope this performance is a declarative statement of his promising career. DuVernay is just as talented as I remembered her being pre-Wrinkle in Time. This series, which I've heard described as a film from the Creator's numerous times is an absolute coup for Netflix and exemplifies the unique storytelling that online platforms like them, Prime and Hulu are capable of offering. A soulful piece from all involved. It feels a little bit forceful occasionally but that's forgivable given the subject matter. I think I'm actually excited for New Gods.
