    Whose Streets?

    ★★★★★

    The events following the murder of Michael Brown from the perspective of people in the community. The protests, the media coverage, the aftermath. Dogwhistles in police reports. Powerful in its specificity; powerful in the echoes of (many other) similar stories.

    Unapologetically political, it will never reach the audience that needs to hear this message most.

    ★★★½

    The Leonard Cohen cover over the opening credits was the high water mark. Pretty good, but nothing new for superhero flicks.

    This is an intense film. I'm really glad that I knew next to nothing about the plot going in.

    There are so many great lines in this film. My wife and I were the only ones laughing in the theater. What does that say about us?

    Equal parts science lesson, metaphysical mumbo-jumbo and emotional manipulation. I loved it.
