I talked about this on Twitter the other night. John Waters placed this on his end of the year top 10 list in 2018. Waters list often features some predictable films mixed with some random ones. This film takes place in Baltimore, so of course John Waters is going to love it.
I felt that the film built up well, but I didn't like the main character's decisions toward the end. If it had been more of a redemptive film, I could imagine being moved by it. However, it featured a young man, Keith (McCaul Lombardi), throwing everything back in people's faces. There were some familiar faces in the film: Jim Belushi, Zazie Beetz, and Marin Ireland.
It could be interesting to see what writer/director Matthew Porterfield does next. We'll have to see.
