I know NT has hard critics, but I don't think any real movie buff could be disappointed with this film.
It was a weird feeling knowing I was on bart so often throughout my childhood, and even weirder knowing that I passed and stopped by Fruitvale so often with my family.
Crooger did such an amazing job capturing the essence of the Bay Area.
The acting was so genuine, the lingo, the words, the facial expressions, the clothing, the environment.
Everything just so genuine.
Just made me feel so differently about life leaving the movie theater. Something kinda unexplainable.
I wish i could put it into words, but it really does put everything into a different perspective.
I mean that in a good way.
Such an amazing job depicting such a tragic and sad event.
You gotta see it.
It's just too real.
