The quest for Poetic Justice
8 June 2019 | by ThurstonHungerSee all my reviews

Trying to strictly avoid spoilers, definitely recommend seeing this, perhaps knowing less about it going in is a plus.

The film is artful and smart while covering some serious wounds. Nine years in the making and the genuine friendship of the two main dates back before that and shines through even in the darkest moments here.

Words often fail, and they'll never stop a speeding bullet, but they still mean something. This is not cinema verite, you can find that on the nightly news sadly.

At times it was odd to enjoy such a creative encapsulation of multiple destructive forces. Amazing effort by cast and crew...in scanning the reviews, if you want something real this *may* disappoint you, but "Blindspotting" like the times themselves is surreal.
