I took my time watching and then reviewing this. It’s heavy duty, and I wasn’t in a deep mood to handle this film. Not for a couple of weeks.

Keira Knightly plays Katharine Gun, and the result is a tense political thriller, and also a newsroom hunt and a courtroom drama. It’s quite powerful, and I actually missed the key scene because of a DVD scratch. Still I urge everyone to watch this if just to keep up on the relevant history you’re living through.

I don’t feel right about giving spoilers. So, I won’t even post the trailer. Trust me. This is an important film.

Most Overlooked Films of 2020

This is a black-American odyssey, a road movie, and kind of unflinching. From the trailer I knew I wanted to see it.

There are some intense, gritty films about race over the past few years. The country is finally coming to terms with its abhorrent past and can talk about it. Black filmmakers are successful and reaching wider audiences. And yet the problem remains the same.

At times spot on, and at other times playful and loose, Queen & Slim was a thought-provoking ride that resonated with me. The police are universally understood in the black community (in the world of the film) as being a brutal, occupying force. The solidarity of the community and the united front of the community are key parts of the narrative. It is about resistance, rebellion, and the dysfunctional system in place. The damage is physical, moral, psychological and lethal.

This should be an instant cult classic, so check it out.
