    Amazing. A compelling combination of Sayles’ wonderfully observed and written characters that gradually turns into an episode of my favourite show, NAKED AND AFRAID

    I’m not being facetious at all when I say this is the best film J.J. Abrams has a credit on.

    Thanks to the complete incompetence of Warner Bros. studios, which has apparently lost paperwork pertaining to the compensation that the cast was entitled to receive, this film exists in legal limbo and cannot be screened. It has not been shown in celluloid since 1989, shortly after the death of filmmaker Bill Gunn. One of the first three studio films to be directed by a black filmmaker (the others are Gordon Parks' The Learning Tree and Ossie Davis' Cotton Comes to Harlem), it never received a full-scale commercial release. I hope someone eventually documents this production in detail.
