Are we repeating the same mistakes ?.......
July 28, 2018
This movie is relevant to the current state of rising racial tensions in S.Africa. I won't comment much more in-depth on that because I live in relative comfort in the United States of America but what I can grasp is that the world as a whole is moving closer to tribalism. With that being said, I gave this movie a perfect rating because it caused me to think. It had a strong impression on me, causing me to think about the meaning of the current state of what's happening in the world. Sure, I still have to get up & live my life but the truth is that we ALL have hurt someone or done worse but at the end of the day, it's realizing our mistakes & thinking about the effect it has on other people. I'm very aware that things arent that cut & dry but at the same time they really are. I enjoy a cheap piece of entertainment once in awhile to take my mind off things but this kind of movie is getting harder to come across & deserves recognition. I've seen others comments about this movie starting out slow & then ending with a bang or picking up....that's life. It welcomes you in & then spanks you. Last but not least, the acting in this movie is pretty damn good so in a nutshell, if your into movies that provoke emotion layered with a historically based script & actors performing with skill then this one is worth all of its 2 hours. Enjoy.
