Notes:
*This is adapted off a play that Denzel Washington (with Viola Davis) was actually in so that's pretty awesome.
*The original play in the 1980s had James Earl Jones in the lead!
*This is the third film directed by Denzel Washington himself and the first one I will have seen the whole thing.
*The man August Wilson who is credited for the screenplay even though he pas... read more

Fences is a triumph of acting and for bringing the great August Wilson onto a larger stage. Wilson’s dialog and poetic sense of drama shake the screen and thunder down on you. It’s an absorbing experience of watching working class black characters struggle and the heft of tragedy you’d normally find the works of someone like Arthur Miller. These are the unseen workers that help keep society ... read more

" Troy Maxson makes his living as a sanitation worker in 1950s Pittsburgh. Maxson once dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player, but was deemed too old when the major leagues began admitting black athletes. Bitter over his missed opportunity, Troy creates further tension in his family when he squashes his son's chance to meet a college football recruiter."

"Karruuaa kertomaa mustista työväenkortteleista 50-luvun Amerriikasta. Tässä elokuvassa homma etenee pelkästään dialogien kautta. Fencesin hahmot jauhavat juttujaan lähes tauotta koko kahden tunnin keston ajan ilman hetkenkään hengähdystaukoa ja lisää ja lisää tekstiä tulee vaan koko ajan. Jossain vaiheessa koko touhuun kyllästyy täydellisesti. Viola Davis sai roolistaan Oscarin. Enpä osaa sanoa oliko ansaittu vai ei, mutta tämä kuitenkin on näyttelijäkeskeinen elokuva ja"
