Selah and the Spades (2020)
Critic Consensus: A smart, well-acted, and refreshingly messy coming-of-age story, Selah and the Spades suggests a bright future for debuting writer-director Tayarisha Poe.

Critic Reviews for Selah and the Spades
Poe's feature debut, though, has a style all its own, spare but rich and able to make the umpteenth teen movie we've all seen feel fresh.
Poe - a new kid on the block who already feels like a major talent - calls a spade a spade but manages to be dreamily oblique, right to the end.
It's impassioned, informed and sometimes furious work that could find Poe being name-checked herself not too long from now.
It's closer to horror than the usual lightweight fare one finds in the genre.
The tone here isn't fun or playful or tongue-in-cheek, "Selah" takes itself dead seriously, which makes its world even less inviting.
