    You need to have a certain disposition and perspective to enjoy Lovers Rock. I am neither a partier, nor one who grew up in the 1980s, so cannot relate to the events of the short film. Sentimentality aside, the story is nearly bare and the cinematography props the whole experience up by itself. Yeah, some of the musical sequences are fun. Yeah, the camera work strikes a balance between disconcertingly close and endearingly intimate signaling the work of the wonderful McQueen. I just never felt anything. Every character introduction or event, be it a sexual assault, grind circle, or token mean white people, meets with indifference. I have no real feelings towards this project, except for vague respect. The unknown actors and their performances seemed authentic and added a degree of depth, and McQueen poured his talents into bringing this into fruition. For many others, this will be enough for five stars when combined with additional layers that I could not extract.

    Este es un gran ejemplo de no ocurre nada, si, pero las vibras

    Not as good as Mangrove, but still very good!

    I really loved this. Excellent. Good concept, good execution. Excellent soundtrack.

    I will have to agree with the false narrative sentiment. Enough horrific things happened one couldve easily come up with one without giving off this vibe.

    15min into this second one, I can tell that this Small Axe thing is clearly not for me. Too much cultural pandering, too little anything else.

    False narrative. Fake. Dumb

    Lovers Rock is a necessary respite from racist tyranny. Vibes reminiscent of "Soul Power," this plotless, hypnotic party parable is a banger that pulses with spiritual energy, testing our resolve not to get up & dance. In one scene, the diegetic reggaeton music powerfully fades away, leaving us only with the sounds of feet softly stepping to the vanished beat & partygoers singing the song acapella…then you sense all the cultural power seep out when the first white person appears.

    I wrote a long, involved review of this film (well, not that long, but still), so I'll get back to a proper review some time soon. In short, while I've seen this at the top of a number of best of 2020 lists, but I found it something of a case of unfinished business. Essentially, there's the setup for the house party and the party itself. Now the recreation of the place, time and the very authentic scenes at the house party itself are stellar. Tone, tension, pacing are all spot on. I wanted more. Not resolution, as there wasn't anything to 'resolve' for me, but I wanted more of a sense of completeness. As I said, there will more later. So for now, 3.6 stars

    A showing of unadulterated joy, and the playful nature of meeting, dancing, flirting, loving, and repartee, to the music you love. A powerhouse of great performances, there are also some strong displays of the uglier side to living and loving, so it's not just about them Silly Games!
