    Didn't see a thread for this and I searched. Anyway, saw this last night. It was extremely good, one of the best of the summer. It was affecting, it was suspenseful, thoughtful, at times very funny, and so many other things while still adept at juggling all of it at least 98% of the time. I honestly thought most of the praise for this film was coming from people who went in with low expectations because of MoviePass but this is genuinely more or less amazing. There's admittedly one scene (involving the main character rapping) towards the end that people either won't have a problem with or it could take them out of the film, but I thought it added to the story, overall

    Absolutely see this while it's still in theaters, because I have no idea how long it'll be for it to still be there. Again, this is a strong top 10 contender for the year for me

    I loved this. It had a few small flaws, but overall it was super entertaining and actually leaves a bit of an impression/makes you think.

    Also, I didn't realize the two lead actors wrote this. Looks to be the first thing that Daveed Diggs has written and the first full length for Rafael Casal. Also, the director's first full length. Obviously they have other experience in the industry (acting, working on shorts/music videos, etc.) but if they keep writing/directing feature length films, I'm excited to see what's to come.

    Even better the second time, now I think this is close to perfect. Hate that I had to take multiple trains to see this again

    This was playing in Boston again, this time with a panel discussion and Q&A with Rafael Casal. Dude was awesome, so was catching this on the big(gish) screen again with a packed crowd that stood up and applauded at the end

    Well this was fucking outstanding. I think I checked into this to see something else on MoviePass when that was still a thing but now I wish I woulda just seen this.
