    The Jazz Singer

    ★★

    This movie does blackface. 

    Historic for being the first movie to have synchronized-music and synchronized speech. It marked the end of the silent era and move to the “talkies”....but like

    Knives Out is an ode to the whodunnits and murder mysteries of the 70s, featuring an incredible balance of drama, suspense, and humor. The film is full of clever, albeit sometimes too predictable, twists and turns that…
