    Genuinely shocked that both The Martian and Interstellar are rated higher than Gravity on Letterboxd. The film still holds up!

    Love & Basketball

However, this is totally Lathan's show, and she's absolutely mesmerizing in every scene she's in. It's a damn shame she didn't become a bigger star after this.

    SXSW 2017 #9 - This film is FUCKED UP. Do you know the feeling of clenching your butt and holding your breath because you're so nervous? THAT'S THIS MOVIE FOR 45 MINUTES. The buildup is incredibly intense, and the film is basically an exercise in suspense and teasing everything until the last minute. But it's also a cathartic experience and has a wonderful payoff. Go into this blind, don't read anything about it. The trailer, poster, and synopsis are vague for a reason.
