Back on my bullshit (because my roommate was interested in it)
i'm so fucking frustrated by this. i want so badly to love it. it should be my favorite movie of the year!! i's politically great, its really fresh and exciting, and its fucking weird in a way so few wide release movies are.
but i'm not there. without spoiling anything, i'll say the twist doesn't work for me other than on a pure structural "what a weird left turn" level. i also think detroit is criminally underwritten and cassius' arc…
