Clint Says: Drop everything and go see this in theaters now
This is one of those films that has everything that it takes to be a Best Picture contender, but for whatever reason it just flies under the radar and it never gets the acclaim that it deserves.
This is a fantastic, unique, and beautiful film that may be slightly confusing at first, but once you understand what is happening, it will draw you in and keep you captivated until the end.
While the story itself is incredible, the acting is some of the best I have ever seen. Winston Duke and Zazzie Beetz should both be up for acting awards for their character portrayals, but I fear their work will also be overlooked.
If you get a chance to see this movie please watch it. It is not your typical, commercial movie fare, but more of an introspective and artistic look at what makes us who we are, and where we come from.
Whether it gets the recognition it deserves or not, it doesn't dilute the fact that this is absolutely one of the best films of 2021.
