La Haine

La Haine ★★★★★

“It's not how you fall that matters. It’s how you land.”

Jusqu’ici tout va bien: so far, so good, so far, so good, so far, so good. It’s rare that I find a film where I can say I wouldn’t change a single creative choice the filmmakers went with. Having a film entirely in black and white was - and still is - a bold choice to make when cinema has been entirely dominated by colour for most of the last century, but here it never once detracts from the narrative - it just enhances it. To be frank though, my attempts to review this film will never do it real justice; seeing really is believing with La Haine, and please trust me when I say this is a must-watch for everyone. 

I’m forever thankful to places like the BFI Southbank and the Prince Charles Cinema for giving me a chance to watch my faves on the big screen. If any of you ever visit London, I couldn’t recommend these cinemas more if I tried!
