As a brilliant mix of the theatrical and cinematic, Lee's vivid adaptation of Pass Over does not concern just Nwandu's story, but the very experience of it.
A brief yet rousing experience, one that retains its theatrical power - and then some - via Lee's deftly constructed transfer.
Pass Over won't tell anyone anything they don't already know, but Nwandu is an undeniably talented and timely voice - one that howls to be heard.
More powerful than its filmed-play format might suggest.
Neither a fresh work nor your run-of-the-mill filmed play.
Spike Lee's unconventional storytelling and theatrical dramatization go beyond the cinematic...
Nwandu's dialog shapes street language into poetry and a compelling narrative, unique to these men and this place.
If only Spike Lee had further stretched the play's boundaries, allowing his free-associative sensibilities to roam.
Overall, Pass Over is successful despite often being way too on-the-nose about specific manifestations of American problems in 2017.
Once again, Spike Lee has found an innovative theatrical production and brought it to blistering cinematic life.
Lee's certainly been a part of this dialogue for a long time, and it's thrilling to see him hook into turbulent material from a talented young writer eager to throw some dramatic haymakers of her own.
