    Tupac was such a natural. His presence and charisma on screen is something else. There are moments here where it’s like flames are sputtering out from his shoulders or something - he burnssss.

    Damn shame he only had a handful of starring roles - who knows how many more rock solid performances we could’ve gotten out of him.

    All these different facets of culture, philosophy, and theory coming together in a perfect package. You can’t capture lightning in a bottle like this. Hardly anyone had before. No one has since.

    Masterpiece. Paul Schrader has captured post-Trump malaise better than any film I’ve seen since the election, whether intentional or not. In the climate we find ourselves in the observant are often burdened by a toxic amount of uncertainty and anger. With this in mind Schrader asks, How is it we try and justify the notion of hope when you can’t ignore the chaos in front and ahead of us? Heavy but necessary.

    So, yeah, the lead of the movie is all for Hong Kong cops busting heads for the status quo. I mean, there’s always the possibility this lady’s been coerced by Pooh Bear’s Chinese gov’t - “Just China Things”. Until that’s proven to be the case - it won’t - you might as well not see 'Mulan'. I kind of planned on giving this a shot up until now, tbh. Blow.
