Critic Reviews for Things Never Said
The result may not be a big movie, but Things Never Said makes a big emotional impact.
When it comes to writing the poetry that Kalindra recites, Murray knows how to do more with less; he needs to apply that lesson to his filmmaking, too.
A powerful statement about the plight of women held back by sexist tyranny.
The film's stars ... are hugely charismatic individually and have chemistry with each other. But the soapy melodrama and ferocious, on-the-nose poems threaten to overpower their budding romance.
The movie's poems are unambiguous rants, delivered with theatrical ferocity. On-the-nose dialogue propels its lessons in self-respect.
Veteran TV writer Charles Murray (Third Watch) shows his small-screen roots by overrelying on tense, weighty exchanges to advance the narrative, but Hampton's steely performance makes them pay off, as the poet learns to wrest truth from pain.
Audience Reviews for Things Never Said
Excellent film. Charles Murray wrote a great script and crafted a compelling narrative. The actors were all on point. Omari Hardwick always delivers and he is superb in this movie. The surprise was Shanola Hampton. She brought it. She is a fine and powerful actress. Elimu Nelson scared the heck out me! Highly recommend this film.
Loved this movie! Need more movies like this and not the typical ones that flood the movie theaters with the same story lines and characters. Great job!
As a debut, I was pleasantly surprised. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I honestly wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. I found myself smiling, laughing, frowning, and even crying, as the characters pulled me into their struggles, pain, and joy. The poetry was awesome, and the actors powerfully delivered a great story. Well done!
