VR cinema's most socially conscious thing yet
13 October 2016 | by pfrank-4See all my reviews

VR cinema is still in its infancy, dominated by game programmers and music videos. This is a rare and interesting exception, by a Panamanian-American woman of color. You literally go on a drive with some people in a black neighborhood of LA in the back seat of their convertible, meet friends, stop and chat with them etc. The plot overall is not 100% peaceful and it confronts a difficult reality. Technically there are a few glitches in the form of visible seams and a few unresolved focal points. But generally this is very much a worthwhile product and I hope to see more VR movies (or "experiences" as they call them) like this in the future. VR really puts you into the action and that can be an excellent tool for this type of storytelling.
