Post Queen & Slim

Queen & Slim is a 2019 American romantic drama film directed by Melina Matsoukas (in her feature directorial debut) and written by Lena Waithe, from a story by James Frey and Waithe. The film stars Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Bokeem Woodbine, Chloë Sevigny, Flea, Sturgill Simpson and Indya Moore. Described as a modern day take on the legend of Bonnie and Clyde, the plot follows two African-Americans who must go on the run after killing a police officer during a traffic stop gone wrong.

Queen & Slim had its world premiere at the AFI Fest on November 14, 2019 and was theatrically released in the United States on November 27, 2019, by Universal Pictures.

Loved it. It's beautifully shot and Jodie Turner-Smith is terrific. My only complaint is the humor mostly didn't work for me. It felt cheap and hokey. But I thought everything else about it was great and powerful so I can overlook it.

9/10 (A-)

Really solid film, but also a bit too long IMO. I never got bored by it, but at a certain point I could definitely feel the running time. That being said it's masterfully made with two great performances from both Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith. Bokeem Woodbine was the best part of this to me though and I wish his character was in it more. Really dug the music too and will be getting that soundtrack eventually.
