Lovers Rock

Lovers Rock ★★★½

Probably works better within the context of the entire series, as the relative lack of a narrative and clear characters is often a tough sell for me. However, I do appreciate how focused on joy and euphoria this is, especially given the heaviness of the other installments. It's definitely also one of the most beautiful productions I've seen in a while, most evident in that ethereal, stunning "Silly Games" centerpiece that is basically just a masterclass of cinematography, blocking, editing, and production design.

GRADE: B
