The American Hero Film we Need: "Harriet"

Are you tired of the white savior films yet? I know I am. This weeks recommendation is one that finally puts a spotlight on a true American hero. Harriet Tubman.

A New Kind of Female Spy "The Operative"

I offer an alternative to this overplayed sexy spy trope with a gritty, realistic, and hopefully well-written narrative. This film looks magnificent and is the anti all of the previous films that I just described. It is at least endeavoring to be fresh and authentic.

The Division of "Black and Blue"

How many times a day have we heard someone make the statement “Black lives matter!”, only to have another person respond with “Blue lives matter!”, only for a third party to chime in saying “All lives matter!”, thinking that they are being helpful but in reality are screaming into an aching void of trite sentiments.

Black and Blue, directed by Deon Taylor, has no time for any such sentiments. It is bent on delivering harsh cold reality in the guise of a thrilling action film. It stars powerhouses Naomie Harris, Tyrese Gibson, and Frank Grillo.

Stockholm: The High-Stakes Robbery Film You Probably Missed

Americans do the craziest things.

On August 23, 1973 an Swedish criminal named, Jan-Eric Olsson entered a bank and proceeded to hold everyone present as hostage, at gunpoint. He then demanded that the police bring his friend, Clark Olofsson to the bank to assist him. The two bonded with the four hostages during the holdup, the hostages even going so far as to try and protect Olsson and Olofsson. The situation was ended and the two apprehended through the use of teargas.
