    ★★★★

    I feel like I just got hit by a fucking truck. This is so deeply, despairingly sad. Just a totally bleak punch to the face, especially that ending, Jesus. I get why people have issues with it, but I also see what the intention was. Seems like maybe they wrote themselves into a corner and had to compromise? I’m conflicted about it.

    ★★★

    This film does very little to differentiate itself from a play, obviously because it was one. But the rhythm of the dialogue and even the inflection of the lines is that of theater, and not a traditional film. And that’s ok, it works! What it does is leave the frame and contained sets wide open for the performances to fill, and wow do they ever. Chadwick Boseman is fucking incredible, the camera is just magnetically drawn to him in every project he blessed with his presence and never more so than this one. He will be sorely and profoundly missed.
