Critic Reviews for Crown Heights
Like its protagonist, sensitively and shrewdly played by Lakeith Stanfield, the film is soft-spoken and thoughtful, with sweet, lyrical touches that alleviate some of the grimness without blunting the cruelty and injustice of what happened.
Crown Heights is as razor-sharp and focused on its historical context and the byzantine workings of the system it takes place in as its increasingly sobered leads.
Stanfield is exceptional, his visage a mixture of bewilderment, humiliation, and simmering rage. His performance grounds the film, and keeps it going through its less confident patches.
Pushing through all of these negative elements is Stanfield's performance, finding honesty whenever he can. I just wish the movie around him was anywhere near as good.
Too crammed and hectic to convey the immensity of the systemic evils that run through its ruptured heart.
