News & Interviews for Cover
Critic Reviews for Cover
Cover is a social-problem film without a solution. While not of the first rank, its inventory of Philadelphia's hot restaurants and cool sights is an occasion for civic pride.
Director Bill Duke aims for social awareness, but delivers second-rate melodrama instead.
A perfect storm of movie badness.
Would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic.
The flesh is weak but the spirit is indestructible in Cover, a ham-fisted morality tale.
Audience Reviews for Cover
Cover is a pretty good film that everyone should try to watch atleast once in their life.
Although they chose to portray the issues within the black community, I thought they did a good job in conveying their message of social awareness to the public.
In real life, the issues that the movie tackles arent confined within the black community, its happening everywhere, married or just going out, how well do you really know the person your sleeping with? How about the one youre going out with? Okay, you might say that it sounds like a "relationship movie", well its not. Its actually like pizza, its got a little bitta this n that. Oh, just go ahead and watch it already!!!
On other things, some might get turned off with it because of the ff:
1. the very lame plot/synopsis written for the movie
2. Religious context
3. Stupid reviews written by other people, most especially when its being compared to Brokeback Mountain.... theyre sooo off the point..
To do the movie some justice, I assure you that watching this isnt the same as reading that lame plot, and although some people prefer to *ahem* veer away from the preachy religious typa movies, well.. okay it might have some scenes where its all about being good and some of the characters try to preach the other about God, but if you actually look carefully, you might see how conflicted we are as human beings (and how hypocritical we might be because of our opinions and beliefs) Genres: Drama / Mystery
Directed by: Bill Duke
