    A constricting, emotional film about parenting and inter-generational trauma, controlling people, living your own life and lost hopes and dreams.

    Denzel's direction keeps the film tightly wound as we feel trapped in the very world we find we want to escape. Any moment there's a scene outside the backyard, we feel we might be free of the vice, but then it always comes back.

    There is so much to unpack in this film, and the dialogue is so crackling fast that it's hard to follow at times, but it's oddly visceral in its tension and the acting is out of this world. That said, the film does border on repetition and tedium at times.

    The first hour is a bit of a chore but the second act does pick up but the movie is still nothing special. Doubt anyone would watch it if Denzel wasn't in it. 2 months 2 weeks ago
