Selected review

The true story of Oscar Grant III, a 22-year-old black man on the last day of 2008, where his will to change is challenged by his past and the police. You’ve probably read and heard a lot about young black mens’ encounters with the police, and for this reason you might feel like skipping this film. Don’t. Produced by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, it is compassionate and powerfully told, that it surpasses the sadness of its subject matter to be a celebration of life. It is an extraordinary film and important watch.

Beautiful use of 16mm.
Even if you don’t care about the subject (which you should btw), watch it just for the visuals.

Ryan Coogler, the man, the legend.. the guy who will go on to make Black Panther and Creed (both with Michael B. Jordan). This movie was his star-making moment. And what an introduction to the world it is…
