    "Of Good Report" is an incredible film. Just booked it for The Pan African Film Festival in February. If you liked "Viva Riva", you will LOVE this film. It's sophisticated, suspenseful and mind-blowing.

    Jahmil X. T. Qubeka is an amazing filmmaker of who I am sure we will be hearing much about in the future. His one of the new African filmmakers who challenges and expands the genre.

    This is truly an AWESOME film! One of the best I've seen all year.
