84% Just Mercy (2020) That message is revolutionary and makes Just Mercy more than "just" a movie; it's a movement, a way of being, a radical call to action. It's on all of us to answer the call. - Shadow and Act EDIT

54% The Best of Enemies (2019) To give ally cookies to a former Klan president because he no longer believes Black people are "evil and dirty" is breathtaking. To reduce Ann's story to her friendship with this man as "a more important story," is even more so. - Shadow and Act EDIT
