Birth of a Nation (Parker, 2016)

Image result for birth of a nation parker

A digressive narrative dilutes the film’s sensitivity to its subject matter, rendering instead moments of presumed emotional gravitas. This is where emotional manipulation trumps sensible storytelling. Overall rather well shot and paced besides its ventures into pseudo surrealism.

63/100 – Decent.

2.5 star
