Lovers Rock

Lovers Rock ★★★★★

NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL 58 — FILM #15

“for all lovers and rockers.”

almost cried from the overwhelming joy i felt watching this. there is nothing that makes me more happy in films than watching ppl dance. i could die happy in the theater so long as i did so while ppl were dancing. 

what i wld give to be at a crowded party again. intimately dancing carefree in the most snug of spaces. what i wld give to feel that sweet, sweaty, euphoric elation. what i wld give to feel on top of the world again—in ecstasy, in enthrallment, and in love. 

the most perfect ending to what i’ve seen of mcqueen’s small axe series. in the midst of Black suffering it it so heartening to see BLACK JOY.
