  • I Like It Like That looks more unconventional than it is, but Martin puts a spin on the material with lots of human color and high energy.

  • Despite its ungainly title, Darnell Martin's debut is a lovely, well-rounded comedy-drama.

    Apr 9, 2007 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A light feminist streak runs through this tale of woman search for self-fulfillment by Darnell Martin, one of the gifted African American directors to emerge in the 1990s.

    Crap. How did this end up as a Film Festival pic. The characters have the complexity of cardboard as they meet stereotypes well.
