    See You Yesterday

    ★★½

    My initial reaction going into this movie was one of excitement. it starts out fun, there is a ton of representation of people of color and the lead is a strong female. I love this. The film touches on topics such as race discrimination and police brutality/murder against black men (BOYS). Whether or not you think the plot works or whatever, this movie acts as a cultural artifact which can help future generations understand what life was like in 2019 and that's pretty cool.

    My letterboxd says that I’ve seen this before. I must have been bored then too. Basically, the subject matter is awesome, but I would have preferred it play as a straight documentary OR a straight narrative film. Instead, the filmmakers chose to flat out lie in the opening in hopes of misleading audiences into believing the film is based on true events when they absolutely are not. The combination of the two styles just didn’t work for me and I can't imagine ever watching/trusting the writer/director enough to watch anything else he chooses to do in the future.
