So... the first 90 seconds of this movie told me I was in for a good time. I mean I know it's not all rainbows and sunflowers out there but damn. Dogs dying in the street and shit!?
I know the movie is designed for maximum outrage and sorrow, and in that respect it's quite effective, but this is totally in territory where... who's excited to see a movie like this? "Oh it's great, it makes you want to jump off a bridge, totally great!" I guess you could take the stance of Molly's father, who commented on Hacksaw Ridge with "do not allow yourself the luxury of missing it" like it's a worthy truth to thrust into everyone's eyes... but still... damn.
OK!!! Well I can't end on that one... I don't even feel comfortable making a Wire joke (which I'm sure is in my notes for any other Michael B. Jordan movie), so let's see if I can dig something lighter up, like Schindler's List or perhaps that Jonestown doc.
