    Another Cinema is possible! A film with its own rules. Incredible and otherworldly. amazing use of stills, non-sync sound, darkness and light, fabric, and the medium closeups of people from behind. Also sweet soundtrack.

    Field Niggas was a revelation as they say, just completely mesmerizing to me, so I had very high hopes for Black Mother. The elements of style that made Field Niggas so good are still here, and this is a more complex and varied film but it fell short for me, and also just kinda seemed too long.

    Wow. Excellent, powerful and unexpected. Also not very dated, aside from the music, it was very modern. First part was a beautiful ode to horses and perhaps the countryside and nature. Second half was a terrifying nightmare of the city and modernity and murder and animal abuse. Did not expect that scene with the horse.

    Animation was excellent but the whole thing was way too "educational" and preachy. Most of it decent stuff but some of it even a bit dubious. However as its a kid thing, I can cut it some slack. And the animation was quite awesome.
