    Is That Black Enough for You?!?

    ★★★★

    There are already plenty of other documentaries covering this subject matter, at least in parts – many of them featuring interviews with director Elvis Mitchell himself! – but few of them have the momentum of this one. Despite the description claiming it will focus on '70s blaxploitation, it's really a near-complete view of popular Black cinema up to that point, including emphasis on deeper cuts for your future watch list.

    This may be the stupidest thing anyone has said in relation to this movie, but I think the whole thing probably should've been significantly more esoteric.

    Stylishly edited with hip music and video effects, but good because it's a solid, straight-forward chronology of the opioid crisis. What's particularly impressive here is that it somehow made me more furious about the current situation without giving me a lot new information, just more specific information.

    The clips from Perdue sales video where white people sing/rap parodies of popular black music is some jaw dropping shit.

    Anyway, we should probably arrest all of these people, redistribute their wealth, burn all of their beloved belongings in front of them, and stick them a brutal labor camp for the rest of their lives.

    I find comfort in the patterns of pyramid scheme/MLM and other scam documentaries. There's an ebb and flow to them. Like water washing up on polished rocks and the sound of one hand clapping.
