The movie is about a disbanded rap group with potential that never materialised and we see where each member is at later in life, the movie handles social and political themes but at the core It's a character piece.
Heavy characterisation is what makes this film shine there's no real melodrama or climax or foreshadowing (hate that) just people living out their lives and we get a view at it, and with such an approach writing is key which this movie nails, the writing is authentic in a way that's comfortable to watch, it's like it takes pains not necessarily to be real but ideal. Its stylings remind me of a Richard Linklater film and in much the same way after the film is finished it leaves me pondering about life.
User reviews these days are overly critical throwing out big words ;) and handing in what seems like school assignments but I watch films, read books, play games or do anything ENTERTAINING to be entertained a place where critiquing should stay out. When I finish a movie I ask myself did I enjoy it if yes I don't waste effort explaining why I didn't enjoy it more. I always say if you're a 7/10 movie then be the best version of a 7/10 movie and when achieved you want for nothing when the credits roll and the same is true with Big Words.
