Something the Lord Made Reviews
A slow moving drama to be sure but the best performance I've seen by MosDef to date .
The curious thing is that Flixster fails to include Mos Def in the cast of this marvelous film.
I was gonna end my comments, but then I heard Vivian Thomas' wife, played by Gabrielle Union, tell Vivian (Mos Def), "Just because your not in the news doesn't mean you were not there Viv!" The influence and significance of his wife is incomprehensible. Praise God for her encouragement and timely words.
"I'm invisible to the world, I understand that I don't mind that, but I thought it was different in here! - Vivian Thomas (Mos Def) tells Dr. Alfred Blalock. Sometimes we are not recognized for our efforts and the absence of praise can be immeasurably difficult; even if we are changing how the human heart works like Vivian. Yet how many know that it is God that will exalt you in due time...so be faithful and remain humble in your endeavors.
