Film Review: Netflix’s ‘jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy — act i: VISION’ (dir. Clarence “Coodie” Simmons & Chike Ozah) | Sundance 2022

Film Review: ‘Emergency’ (dir. Carey Williams) | Sundance 2022

A dark comedy with some Gen Z satire and social commentary packed in, ‘Emergency’ is definitely a highlight of my Sundance 2022 experience. This funny college party movie quickly shifts its focus to touch on problems today’s youth face. The film follows three young men of color who are forced to weigh the pros and cons of calling the police after discovering a drunk white girl knocked out in their house.
