Malcolm & Marie

Malcolm & Marie ★★★★½

I’m sort of shocked at the negative reception that this film has received tbh. Personally I really appreciated the alternating monologue sort of writing structure, I felt it worked with these characters as they were realistically complex and flawed. With each little aspect of their displeasures, personality and past being revealed during the intense exchanges. Every time you feel like you can relate to one side, the counter perspective is fleshed out in the next scene. 

Top class performances from Zendaya and John Washington coupled with the monochromatic cinematography and Jazz filled soundtrack made this incredibly enjoyable. Felt like a play put onto film, in the best of ways.
