    Mudbound is adapted from a novel and feels, but that's not meant as a negative, merely that it manages to have novelistic élans, like poetic narration coming from several of the characters, sequences that jump from one cast of characters to another, and a scope that's a little longer, in terms of time, than most movies. The story examines race relations in post-WWII Mississippi through two symbiotically-linked families, one white, one black, and finds them intolerably difficult. In a state that is, thematically, stuck in the mud of the past, nothing can change, and even a progressive attitude will only lead to tragedy. At the very heart of the film are two war veterans, one from each family, something that bonds them beyond what skin color would permit, and while Mary J. Blige got an Oscar nomination for her supporting role, Jason Mitchell as Ronsel may well be the highlight for me. A heavy but honest film perhaps best exemplified by a the bitterest eulogy ever given in a film - it's worth getting to the end for it. 4 months 3 weeks ago

    Terrific film. Epic, novelistic storytelling that's thematically rich, 100% truthful, and driven by fascinating characters that are performed, quite literally, to perfection - and all complemented by subtly beautiful direction. 8 months 2 weeks ago

    This one's gonna be ignored by the academy due to their dislike for Netflix. Dont be fooled. I doubt you'll see many movies better than Mudbound this year. star performance by Jason Mitchell, best I've seen from Garrett Hedlund and support performances from Carey Mulligan, Rob Morgan and Jonathan Banks simply knocks this flick straight outta the park. 6 months ago
