    Surviving the Game

    ★★★★

    20 Films by Black Directors: Film #20

    One of the most underrated and overlooked genre films of the 1990's, Surviving the Game brings together a wonderfully dynamic cast of great character actors for a fun and brutal The Most Dangerous Game riff made even better by Ernest Dickerson's stylish, energized direction and Bojan Bazelli's lush cinematography.

    It's as standard as it gets for a fugitives-on-the-run caper, but Fled is still a reasonably fun buddy crime comedy thanks to well-put together action sequences, Kevin Hooks' sturdy direction, and the surprisingly strong chemistry between stars Laurence Fishburne and Stephen Baldwin.

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
