The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness ★★★

Ok imagine this but it’s all in black and white until the last scene or two, they remove the cheesy score and voiceover, and then give it an R rating to be able to make it feel more emotionally hard hitting. This is potential for a huge satisfying gut punch but it misses the mark by trading in it’s potential to please the masses.

Jesus fuck I realize that sounds really pretentious but its true.
