Lovers Rock

Lovers Rock ★★★★

A display of uninhibited joy and the playful nature of meeting, bantering, dancing, flirting, and loving, with a banging soundtrack that will have you dancing and nodding to the rhythm of the film. It is a respite from racist tyranny, a plotless, hypnotic party parable that pulses with spiritual energy. It is a film of the senses; you can taste the food, smell the sweat, feel the movement, see the love and above all hear - no, FEEL - the music. People love describing films as a "vibe" and while in most instances it's entirely non-descriptive, it's the perfect word to describe this. Issa vibe.
