I didin't mind this film but the story was very typical of the genre. I guess what made it different was the fact that Riz Ahmed was the lead and a film like this would be typically anchored by a white actor. The film was well acted and hit the beats it needed to but the cultural dynamic at play here was glanced over in my opinion.
surprisingly warm and good. highlights: shifty and chris playing the skate park ride, the talk after shifty and chris ran from the police, "you bring drugs into my house?! the house that i pray in?!", "as if i'm not gonna come with you you nutter", shifty and chris sitting before the front window in the dark waiting.
