  • that wig tho | February 22, 2014 12:00 AMReply

    I don't like that afro wig.

    I wonder how the movie will fare given its attachments title and subject matter. I wonder what audience composition will be like.

    I'm sure it will appeal to some people. Not my cup of tea, though. It seems a bit too angry. If I'm to get upset about racism, it has to be something specific like the Trayvon Martin or Jordan Davis murders other than that I prefer to be "happy" like the Pharrell. Life is too short to be angry all the time.

    film festivals are great! But forget the same distribution route, films like this need to be seen, put it on youtube(the rental part), itunes, amazon, VOD through cable etc...shooot do your own, there are a lot of web developers out here. Sundance was great but ummmm no one commenting has seen it and this film has had a trailer out for almost 3 now. I hope they think outside of the box for this distribution wise.

    We need this film. wait, my soul needs this film and to place reality into it when the character said I got shoes older than you or something to that effect, well I am in his age bracket and we need this film -PERIOD!

    I'm so ready to see this movie! What's going on with the distribution? How come we haven't heard anything yet? I hope this isn't a situation where they travel the festival circuit for years and THEN decide to release the film...when all the momentum is gone.
