    It took me a long time to finally watch this movie, mostly because I was terrified it wasn't going to be the emotional masterpiece the trailers led me to believe it was. Turns out, it was exactly what I needed it to be. The movie is about family, legacy, and dreams. It's about loving a city, a situation, even when it doesn't seem to love you back.

    Powerful, powerful, powerful. As we often say, there is no such thing as a perfect film, at least not on a technical level. But the way Spike Lee effortlessly as well as flawlessly radiates power through his filmmaking is consistently astounding and breathtaking to me. This movie radiates power, passion, rage, and timelessness. So many perspectives were explored, so much history uncovered, and so many beautiful moments to make this film truly unique and (I'll say it again) powerful. A must-watch and the most important film of 2020, by far.

Every performance from Robert to Zoe to Colin to Jeffrey to Paul to Andy to John was all literal perfection. The direction and writing by Reeves is again literal perfection, especially pertaining to perspective shots, the use of blur and rain, the focus on faces, and the complexities behind the mystery and The Riddler's misdirect.
