I expected to watch a couple minutes before moving on to something more fun. Instead I was glued to the screen for two hours. We've all lived through it, but it's clarifying to see the disaster unfold, day-by-day, sometimes even hour-by-hour. Some of the bungles are simply mind boggling. For example, we hear from one of the young volunteers (volunteers!!!!) who were put in charge (by Jared) of procuring PPE for our ravaged hospitals. Meanwhile, we see nurses crying in front of hospitals where they tried to use garbage bags as PPE (garbage bags!!), and eventually we see governors smuggling in supplies. Ultimately, the picture of what went wrong is all too clear.
Captures a moment in black entertainment, long before cellphone videos, when busting into a white dominated movie industry was no easy feat. Loved the pure joy in the portrayal of the verbal trickster, from street, to standup, to movies.
