Movie Info

Dmitri is a pizza guy who would rather smoke weed and suffer for his art, but his mom and his girl won't stop nagging him to get a real job. When he's offered a gig mouthing off to tourists behind the wheel of a Hollywood "star tour" bus, it looks like everyone might get what they want. Trouble is, our man can't seem to step out the door to get to the interview without endless complications: busted radiators, simple weed scores gone sideways and LAPD cruisers seemingly everywhere. Dmitri's skill at going unnoticed by cops is honed by painful experiences growing up Black in L.A., but even his keen survival instincts won't save him from the week from hell.

Critic Reviews for Driving While Black

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Those ready for a quick time out from fight-the-power indignation may well roll with the picture, which relies on the charms of Purdy, an off-screen musician known as Koreatown Oddity.

That Sapiano and Purdy juxtapose the misadventures of a black delivery man with the nuanced conflict within a Seal Beach police department is ... unexpected, though it sets the film on a collision course it doesn't survive.

The arguments of Driving While Black are not subtle, but they are multi-faceted.

February 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Though a dark(ish) comedy, I feel the message and gravity of Driving While Black will hit home for many Black folks, and hopefully open the of eyes of people who don't believe there is a problem with race and law enforcement in this country.

February 1, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Big subject, trite treatment.

Black lives know how to spoof the inclination of police to target them-- with some hilarious results.
