All Rise (2020)
Critic Reviews for All Rise
In its strongest passages, Monster is about establishing the humanity of a young black man. But it hardly expands beyond a timely Law & Order episode, albeit with more of a focus on racial politics.
In graduating to features from a busy career in music videos, commercials and photography, director Anthony Mandler can't get out of his own way.
For student from stable, middle class Harlem family...this is extreme application of unjustified perception of black males by law enforcement...leading to mass incarceration.
Good performances by the entire cast are hurt by distracting choices.
It sounds gloomy and somber, it's true, but the emotionally rousing Monster does find threads of hope amid the despair.
