"Origin (Ava DuVernay, 2023)"


          

I loved this movie.

It's doing A LOT. And because it has a lot on its mind, it's not going to work for everyone. Just saying. Just a warning. But man I loved this.

Breathtaking.

Literally. Took my breath away multiple times while watching it.

instantly my favorite from Ava.

her Direction here deserves EVERY award.

The deft & gentle & strong & sure & artistic hand at the crafting of the storytelling here left me in awe...its so engaging and moving and, yes, entertaining as a theatrical experience. Thats an impressive feat imo, considering the denseness & context of the source content that inspired it.


Dont even get me started on all of the acting performances within. lawd!


Its beautiful. A must see imo.

So well written and directed and acted.

Its probably the most important film of the last decade (as is the book). It should be required viewing in schools and universities.

It made me want to buy the hard copy of the book...especially in light of how physical books have been likened to 'contraband' in certain places. Like i want to have these words present in the physical world and not just read them online...

yeah...i think it should indeed be shown in schools, universities, libraries, churches, etc...wherEVER....for all of the obvious reasons.

Im still Astonished at how much knowledge & history this film contained, yet how AMAZINGLY entertaining & riveting the narrative delivering it all was. For that feat, it really deserves ALL the awards for Direction, Screenplay Adaption, Acting...etc. Imo its a legit masterpiece.

Of all the images, that scene hit me because I could feel all the moments when I was Al Bright, and I was sitting outside the proverbial pool.

THEN THE DALITS.


Truly a masterful work.

so MANY moments that will 'get' you in this way or that...

and yet, for me, the true magic of this movie is that ultimately i left feeling 'shifted'...more connected, more motivated, uplifted, hopeful even...

i really cant say enough about this one.
