Belly

Belly ★★★½

"The film cuts out to Time Square on New Years’ the confetti pouring down in a vision of beauty that recalls the ending to Kathryn Bigelow’s Strange Days. What does it say that a woman and an African American are the ones who predicted the new millennium could bring a time of utopia? Belly, for both its beauty and its incompetence, remains a singular work of American cinema."
