Missing no stops on the road from cloying to annoying, Harlem Aria has waited more than 10 years for domestic release. Maybe its destiny has been written.
Harlem Aria has been gathering dust since it screened at the Toronto Film Festival in 1999. Why it is now getting a release is something Congress should look into.
Despite pro handling on both sides of he camera, the storytelling and filmmaking ring false, especially, in the characterizations.
Racial tensions and bawdy humor carry the day, until, following an unfunny set piece at a fancy hotel and a street robbery, black and white (far too) easily come together to help their young charge.
100 minutes of Hell that had me reaching for my meds.
A contrived, lazy drama that's increasingly asinine, unrealistic, awkward and over-the-top.
Entertaining debut film about a Harlem laundry worker who dreams of becoming a famous tenor.
Scrap the negligible subplot about inanimate objects desiring, and achieving, corporeal existence and the narrative of William Jennings's Harlem Aria is essentially Pinocchio in the Hood.
