    this was fucking spectacular. first of all, any film that effectively uses archival footage hooks me. i love it i live for it. but what a feat did shaka and the whole crew and cast pull off here. daniel kaluuya is a fucking force, he’s brilliant. dominique fishback is also wonderful. so often, stories about black power and civil rights flatten the characters into one dimensional titans, and we can forget they were people. yes, this film anoints fred hampton…

    Darwin's Nightmare

    white male director making a film about the global south bingo: exploitation of the subjects, having people who don’t speak english very well speak english instead of the language they’re more comfortable with, poor orphans, the only women being sex workers portrayed as dirty, degraded, and helpless, incoherent and poorly constructed narrative with poorly crafted shots

    this film: B-I-N-G-O

    (bonus for noble savage vs. savage brute trope AND inconsistent captions for native languages)
