STRESS RATING: 💥💥💥💥
Personal Rating: 9
Honestly, I was pretty surprised to read the reviews of this and find that most people thought it was pretty average. I mean, it’s not really adding completely new topics to the dialogue, but does that really detract from the movie’s quality? It’s beautifully shot, it’s written really well, it stars Daniel Kaluuya... what more do you people want? Whatever. On another note, very few characters are trustworthy in this movie, and many surprise you in ways that are often pretty stressful. Adding to that stress is the subject matter at hand, which is brutally realistic, and made no less ugly in its depiction. That being said, Queen & Slim pretty great, and you should watch it... because I said so.
