Visually dynamic---holds most of your attention through its marvelous cinematography with its sole point of focus being on Taylor Takahashi's incredible star-making performance as the titular character. Contains some of the sleekest basketball sequences I've seen in a long time--the fluidity you get while juxtaposing flowing camerawork with smooth editing (through incredible music from the ever-creative Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge) makes for the purest cinematic expression possible. Sure, goes on the clichéd side. Absolutely...but still. There's some incredible instances of something truly legitimate here---a feat that seems to lose itself nowadays. Rest easy, Pop Smoke.
If opportunity won't knock on your door,
break the fucking wall.
Amen. Stop sitting on the sidelines and start taking massive and uncomfortable action. Easier said than done? Nah---you think you won't be able to make it...but if you continue to sit on the sidelines and never try anything...ofc you won't make it. If you have a goal that you want to pursue, you just have to make it your #1 priority, even if winter keeps arriving on a snowplow. Just. Fucking. Do. It.
A holiday classic
