    Go Tell It On The Mountain

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Serviceable. Finished reading the novel yesterday and watched this shortly after. Feels like the type of movie an English teacher would show in class cause this is mostly a sparksnotes condensed plot summary. Aggressively un-cinematic (aside from a particular inspired shot) but with a pretty stellar cast that makes it not a complete waste of time.

    I don't like church or religion, but I like the community it fosters. That's all I have to say on the matter.

    OH MY GOD, a Trois film feels like an actual movie with crowd scenes, multiple locations, competent acting, and actual film direction! Sylvain White>>>>>>Rob Hardy.

    Now I'm not saying that I want to write an essay dissecting black erotic thrillers, BUT IF I WERE to write that essay I would probably use this as neat jumping off point.

    Greetings from Africa

    In a better world, Cheryl Dunye would've blown up and be a household name and we would all be blessed with a plethora of smart, lesbian romcoms.

    So Pretty

    While the rest of mainstream queer cinema strives for assimilation (Love Simon, Call Me By Your Name, etc) this film is a much needed radical breathe of fresh air.
