A good movie

11 months, 1 week ago at Dec 13 21:04
To be honest, I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it was directed by Spike Lee, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though  I knew obviously what happened to Rodney King, I have to admit that I didn't really remember much of the details on how it all went down at the time so, only as a reminder, this movie was already quite valuable. Seriously, aft... read more

Initial Thought: I didn't know what this was going to be. All I saw from Netflix was the name. I thought it was going to be some kind of dramatization of Rodney King.

Characters/Acting: Roger Guenveur Smith doesn't get many big roles, but you would recognize him from many things. Here he does something rather remarkable. A performance that is more like a long monologue that does a lo... read more

"Notes: I know, it might seem surprising that I chose a rather obscure one-man show from Netflix but, I guess I didn't see so many great male performances this year. Anyway, Roger Guenveur Smith was really impressive in this and I couldn't come up with someone else deserving more this prize. "

A good movie

“To be honest, I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it was directed by Spike Lee, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though  I knew obviously what happened to Rodney King, I have to admit that I didn't really remember much of the details on how it all went down at the time so, only as a reminder, this movie was already quite valuable. Seriously, after hearing how this case was handled, it is rather difficult to still have faith in the American justice system. But, eventually, the whole thing was not only about telling the simple facts which were very often seriously heartbreaking and Roger Guenveur Smith went way beyond that and  delivered a rather chaotic, surreal but very often spellbinding performance. Basically, as pointed out on a regu” read more

" Familiar Actor: Roger Guenveur Smith True Rating: 10/10 My Review: Reviewing Rodney King"


BAMF posted a review 1 year, 5 months ago

“Initial Thought: I didn't know what this was going to be. All I saw from Netflix was the name. I thought it was going to be some kind of dramatization of Rodney King.

Characters/Acting: Roger Guenveur Smith doesn't get many big roles, but you would recognize him from many things. Here he does something rather remarkable. A performance that is more like a long monologue that does a lot with the words used. Smith doesn't get the notice he should and after this I hope he will.

Story: So this one is a different sort of story. It isn't your typical film. It's a performance. It's a really intelligent and well thought out one too. The ending was a tiny bit odd, but that didn't take from how much I enjoyed this.

Writing/Directing: This is a different path from Spike ” read more
