Rainbow Time

Rainbow Time ★★★★½

Rainbow Time is frequently funny, but we're never laughing at anyone, which is very important given how Shonzi and his actions could've easily been the concluding punchline for many of the scenes in this film. Phillips is smarter than that, however, and instead crafts a film that's respectful and wise regarding the treatment of women in addition to drawing a complex character like Shonzi in an equally respectful light. Many films have been made about "that" family member or someone in our lives we can't live with nor without. Few have been as smart of as compelling in a natural sense as this one.
