Saw Pariah today. And this film is good. Not only because of the use of camera, the quality of the actors, or the script. But because of the message that is was telling. I know that its a struggle, but I’ve never identified with it. Seeing it makes me realize that its hard. So very hard. You should def. see this film.
watched the movie. now its time to read the book.
i’m not sure why i waited so long to see the movie. even after its hype. but i have to say it was exceptional. even though some are hesitant because of its sad nature, i thought the acting was on point. not only the acting, but the story lines, the blending of the play’s words into the script added to its being exceptional. a lot of issues that run in the black community and pertain to women are in this movie. im surprised that a lot if these issues did not prompt discussion among critics and people outside the community. a lot of the criticisms i read were based on the movie being too depressing. and not on the issues it was trying to raise.
and why wasn’t it nominated in categories of the major film awards? thats another issue in itself. but i won’t go there.
