    Do the Right Thing

    I like MLK and Malcolm X in a picture together at the end. Even though they had different approaches to civil rights, they both worked to do the same right thing. In accordance with the movie, it’s all about unity.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love the shot at the end where the boys are just staring at the house unable to piece things together. I can definitely relate to that scene and feeling. Even though staring at the house might be dramatic, I think it’s important to never forget such tragedies. And even though you can never truly understand or piece things together, it’s important to process everything. I like how the movie tied that in at the end. The parents were able to move on, but not the children who connected with the girls.

Anytime a movie leaves a mark on your brain it’s done a job well done!

    I appreciate the simplicity of this film and it’s careful attention to emotion. As a viewer, it’s so easy to have tremendous empathy for the soldiers when you follow their every step and notice every change in their expression. I thank the long-take filming technique for bringing out 1917’s full beautiful potential.
