April 11, 2018
Suffused with an emphatic but completely vague sociopolitical anger, Slam can't get beyond reiterating familiar sentiments about genocidal cycles of violence and black male prison statistics.

Slam is a fable disguised as a slice of life, and cobbled together out of too many pieces that don't fit smoothly together. It's moving, but not as effective as it could have been.

This film can be valued for its energetic performances.

The fiction element of the film, instead of driving Levin to deeper truths, delivers him toward triteness and manipulation.
