    Again, same thing: this flick is and keeps what it promises. When I decide to eat fast food, I don't expect full fare. This kind of movie wants, should and may perform exactly as we, the audience, expect it to. And it has succeeded in that! I see here some of the greatest camerawork, costume design and special effects I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. The music, the connection between modern and vintage are great class! The cast is…

Most fascinating to me, however, is the editing, Tom Cross is simply a genius! The direction and the second work of Damien Chazelle is enviable, this man simply belongs at the top! It's nice to see that there are people who believe in you.

My greatest praise goes to the actresses, who all deliver wonderful performances. I've seen a lot of films about segregation and the conflict between black and white, but never have I been so deeply touched by a story that should be an example to everyone. Even though I've never been political…
