    This movie did something that is rarely done or successfully done for that matter, poking fun at the modern day NASCAR world. This is pure Will Ferrell at his best. In my opinion one of Will’s best comedies in his movie filmography hands down bar none. F*cking hilarious with great satire of the Deep South and the culture of NASCAR.

No doubt that Dallas Buyers Club is extremely important and moving about hope and acceptance that can’t be missed.

    This one hits home with two instances: the crisis of gentrification and displacements in cities all across the country; and the also the general absence in most movies of nuanced presentations of black masculinity. It’s a beautiful moving portrait of friendship and a heart-rending story of loss. Each scene feels thoroughly orchestrated with nuanced themes all throughout so masterfully done.

    It does what indie films are supposed to do: which is making us see things from a different perspective. The…
