Critic Reviews for The Obituary of Tunde Johnson

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (2)

  • I was so impressed by the way it found a totally inspired avenue into the familiar Groundhog Day structure.

    March 10, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The Obituary of Tunde Johnson takes an eerily unique and effective aim at the ongoing slaughter of young black men by white police officers. Tunde stands in for those whose keening obituaries we've already read.

    November 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An agonizing tale about the weight society hoists upon too many black gay men's weary shoulders, it's the kind of film that lingers in your mind days after you've seen it, as much due to the relevant subject matter as to Tunde's penetrating gaze.

    September 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The cumulative assassinations begin to ache like a mysterious bruise, making the audience feel the psychic weight of living in fear. Yet, the style of the film is more teen soap opera than vérité miserablism.

    September 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • You can't say it isn't bold.

    June 15, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Silver's performance also shows us exactly how many facets of Tunde are in play at any given moment, and how this experience shatters him over and over again.
