I knew it would be good but wow I am speechless. This is the best movie of the year and one of the best of the decade. If anyone is in NY see this at the Angelika.

Whats it about
The official synopsis is

Traces the journey of a suburban family - led by a well-intentioned but domineering father - as they navigate love, forgiveness, and coming together in the aftermath of a loss.

The trailer doesn’t do it justice. The movie takes a sudden turn halfway through that changes the lives of everyone in the movie forever and devastates and shocks the viewer. The soundtrack is amazing as well, I must have shazammed at least 9-10 times

You saying the movie takes a sudden turn in the middle IS a spoiler. People that know movies know what you mean

It’s really not a masterpiece at all. Not sure what you watched but it’s badly directed and pretty badly written as well. The director decided to allow KHJ to play one note in most of the scenes and had the Dad in the same place as well. The one shinning spot in the film with the daughter. It’s really a an over extended music video for most of the film. What is masterful is the cinematography in the film. The use of lighting to convey the emotion(that the characters lack) is wonderful. Quick judgment with a lack of examination causes us to label sh*t classic after an hour. Nah, the film as a 2.5 out of 5 at best.

No he’s not. He’s not not leading man quality he doesn’t pop off the screen. In GFOH I keep waiting for him to have some sort of presence and that moment never comes. He was pretty good in Luce which made me wonder were they just using him wrong in GFOH, but no this film confirms the kid is limited as fu*k. Anthony Ramos, who also outshined him in Monsters of Men is a dude to watch as a star. KHJ is getting a push but he’ll never connect with fans he’ll be the next Columbus Short roles in films with limited appeal.

Won’t spoil but it gets worse the director is white and he likes to do color blind casting the same way Shonda Rimes does meaning, I’m going to write all of these characters white and then just see what the production company wants me to do next. They come in and say oh so and so is hot let’s get him as the lead. The story is formed around that and you have a generic a*s story masquerading as a black film.

It’s corny as fu*k really some real millennial targeted sh*t or at least what people think of the demo. Fast cuts a bunch of random music and camera movement to keep your attention. They really focused on trying to hold attention more than actually having a compelling and well told story. I’d wait for Netflix, where it probably should have been in the first place.
