Deeply saddening and uncomfortable viewing.
'Anthony' details the real life racially motivated murder of Anthony Walker. As you can imagine, it all makes for extremely tough viewing, especially when you know of the incident. I do like how the film portrays events, with focus put on Walker's life as opposed to the racists.
The film tells the story in reverse, in relation to how his life could've turned out. If I'm honest, I didn't love the backwards nature of the storytelling - it breaks up what they are trying to show too much for my liking, as it feels too stop-start. With that noted, the acting and meaning of those scenes are very nicely done.
Toheeb Jimoh is superb in…
