[Okwui] Okpokwasili uses song, dance, and soliloquy to explore, with a political edge, the intricacies of black girlhood, and onstage she's a magnetic force, physically commanding and emotionally raw.
Despite some undeniably powerful moments, Bronx Gothic, both the show and the film, suffers from an overall pretension.
A stirring ode to the liberating catharsis of artistic expression, as embodied by Okpokwasili and Born's transcendent theatrical masterwork.
In the end, Ms. Okpokwasili's often academic-sounding exegeses of her work become repetitive.
It's a far superior work to Manifesto, another conceptual art film, mostly because the artist doesn't have the luxury of cool, aloof detachment. But it leaves quite a few unanswered questions.
Bronx Gothic...follows the usual pattern of Hollywood's imprisoning blacks within the limits of white liberal imagination...Rossi's liberalism - his whitesplaining - intrudes on his star's storytelling.
Shifting, unpredictable, and passionately alive.
Bronx Gothic presents a rare and precious state of grace that's been created by the phenomenally gifted performance artist Okwui Okpokwasili.
Performer Okwui Okpokwasili wants us to feel her pain in the worst way.
By design, the film is intensely preachy. And this preachiness serves a therapeutic purpose, offering jolting possibilities for empathy.
