    Wow this movie was powerful. It showed the struggle of a returning citizen trying to get away from the trappings of his old life, so he could make a better life for his son. He wants out so much but the prison of poverty, discrimination, and his past continue to place roadblocks in front of him.

    was so captivated that I didn't know it was the end until the credits rolled through. and It left me wondering did he get his story published? Did he get his son? how did his brother get the money to continue school? I absolutely loved this movie though!

    Really enjoyed this movie, despite it being predictably sad and disheartening. John Boyenga is like a Denzel clone in this movie, in a good way. 8.5/10.

    Imperial Dreams is a solid film but one with a story that is overly familiar. It does do a good job of framing the corrupt nature of the rehabilitation cycle in America, but doesn't stop it from feeling like a film I've seen many times before.

    One of my top 3 favorites. Relentlessly honest examination into the life of an aspirational black man.
