Sean Baker’s review published on Letterboxd:
Finally got to see this on the big screen and it lived up to the hype. Why Jospeh Kahn doesn't receive more love from the indie film scene bewilders me. He finances his own films and takes risks with the content.
Bodied is hilarious and is quite beautiful from a production design and cinematography standpoint but it is also quite thought-provoking. It tackles the subjects of racism, representation and bigotry aggressively and isn't afraid to offend... just like a rap battle.
Simon Rex has an extremely amusing cameo. Love him. I'd like to see him tackle a dramatic role.
Screened at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver - great venue btw.
