Don’t think I can add much to what’s already been said about this film. I’m pretty sure everyone is familliar with the story this film tells and is inspired by but knowing the story is only half of it and this film proves exactly why.
It doesn’t lose focus throughout its runtime and that’s largely down to Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield’s performances who give two of the best performances of the year and that’s not even mentioning the supporting cast.
A perfect execution of a devastating story, hats off to Shaka King’s direction, this film would simply not be what it is without him. This, in my opinion, is the best film to come out this year and I sincerely hope this film gets a lot of recognition at the Academy Awards.
