It was better than I thought it would be. I enjoyed how it didn't simply demonize one set of people and praise another. It showed had all sides contribute in this complicated thing called life. I recommend it.

Movie was great from a cinematography standpoint. Score and visuals perfect. However, this movie paints us in a light that reinforces stereotypes.
1. Stupidly tragic decisions from the very beginning.
2. Our community banding behind criminals foolishly.
3. Our youth looking up to criminals and committing crimes because they admire what was done.
4. We are gonna sell each other out.

The writing could have been better and had a story that painted us in a better light without reinforcing stereotypes. Non-minorities will leave that theatre with the same beliefs they had from the beginning.

The director out here calling this a "revolutionary film". Nah this ain't it. You have got to change the narrative and I don't think this helps at all.

Thatís actually some I wondered about. It appeared as if he knew they would be in that spot so Iím guessing he was the one who was supposed to help em out but he worked out a deal for the money on they head.
They were sleeping he could have been in that spot by coincidence and noticed them sleeping and recognized them since they were Notorious

When he peeled off fast I knew something was up but I was wondering if he was the actual contact point the white guy gave them or a random guy who happened to be in the right place and recognize them

This is actually exactly how I feel. A lot of the choices were questionable. She was an awful attorney.

I think it should be seen. Because overall it's a good movie. But it has its flaws.

A few things to unpack here in this great film, first off its def top 5 for this year

The movie and the writers in general did a good job in the setting and basically the background aesthetics. In gene half of what a movie is is just the setting , clothes , and the sh*t going in the background

I like how the writers brought these 2 main characters through the south, which for many black Americans has a connotation in itself with blues, jazz, but just the all around black American experience. They went to jazz bars , drove through rural cities, in attempt to go the girls uncles house in Louisiana.

To show u the importance of this, the writer la could of easily said letís make them go to Cali or New York or some big city.

The setting of the movie was nothing flashy either, no exotic cars no modern looking vehicles, and the way in which they dressed just gave the movie a 70s type of vibe to it

I would delve deeper but I want yíall to go see it.

Even though the story writer Lena waithe is a lesbo and all on the pro lgbt tranny sh*t the movie is dope. Def fu*k with these new wave of black directors. I thought all hope was lost after the singletary, spike lee, generation

It's a beautifully shot movie, with a good soundtrack. The story is pretty good for the first 2/3 but that last act goes allllllllll off the rails.

It's entertaining. If that's your standard go pay money for it. If you need a super coherent message or you want your side to win you'll be disappointed.

Very well made... Few holes, but the pacing is great and the character development is A 1. Donít want to give anything away but basically a black Bonnie & Clyde set in a Trump administration era.

Itís dope.
I agree with this.

With the few plot holes it was still very much a dope film.

On 1

I think he pulled a stupid move but I've never been in that situation so I dont know what I wouldve done. A white cop didnt pull a gun on me but we sure enough scrapped for a couple of minutes because he was being a d*ckhead his back up who I was lucky to see was a black person separated us and i got my ticket and went on my way.

On 2 and 3

I wonder what your thoughts would've been living during the civil rights movement or black panther era. They broke "laws" and were revered in our community. Thats a really misguided statement that lacks any explanation into what actually what transpired in the mover

On 4

Its with any race guys in the mafia snitched for lower sentence same with the jewish mob etc...I understand where youre coming from here tho the optics and the stereotype behind it has had a lasting negative affect on the community.

#2. So this was not an act of self-defense to you? Interesting, because that’s literally what happens with these police shootings - divided perception. I think that actually speaks to the authenticity of the film. A certain section of people will view that situation as defending one’s self, while the other will look at them as murders (criminals) and thus deserving of death or imprisonment.

Personally, I don’t think she needed to create some fake world here. That’s a repeated criticism I’m hearing about the movie but people’s reasonings are falling flat. I think she wanted to show black people as simply people. Meaning, they will have their flaws like the next man. Which brings me to my next point in saying that these so called stereotypes aren’t just found within the black community. The biggest stereotype, and probably the one that “made us look the worst” was actually, to me, the father-son conversation about how many bi*ches he had. Even then, infidelity isn’t exclusive to black folk, although when it comes to taking pride in it, seems like that’s some n*gga sh*t more than any other race in America.

Still though, I didn’t walk away from this movie thinking she made black people look bad. There was a line uttered by Slim where he asked “Why we always gotta be excellent? Why we can’t just be us?”...or something to that effect...which I think speaks to the intentions of the writing.

I don't know where y'all getting this "Random guy" logic from. Fam with the Goldmouth wasn't no random. And so what they made a bunch of stops, that wouldn't have changed anything. He just sold them out, simple as that unfortunately. What compensation y'all think he woulda received for actually helping them?? Other than simply doing right by his ppl - which he should have done. Y'all forgetting about the bounty price ???? $250G's apiece.. The white woman at the house said it herself, "thats enough to pay off our mortgage" so wutchu think a "LOST" n*gga gonna do.....

Oh and for the record, I caught the early premier at the Howard theater with the Q&A. The director 'Melina' said the guy who sold them out was originally written to be a "wigga" who was trying extra hard to be down. They felt it was too obvious... a last min decision was made to make him a black guy.
