“Mudbound”: Film Review & Podcast

Posted: February 16th, 2018 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | 1 Comment »

Crafting a movie that is both vast in scope and an intimate portrayal of genuine human interaction is always difficult.

But when it’s done right, it’s a joyous cinematic experience, even if the subject matter is not the easiest to digest.

Dee Rees has accomplished something special with “Mudbound,” which is set in the Mississippi Delta just after WWII, and focuses on the interaction of two families — one black, one white — with each other and with society.

It is gorgeous to view. It is entrancing to contemplate.

The ensemble cast, led by Mary J. Blige, Carey Mulligan, Jason Mitchell and Garrett Hedlund, is pitch perfect. Both in the portrayals, and the interaction of the characters.

This movie has generated hardly a glance during the awards season.

I am stunned frankly. It is, one fellow’s opinion, the best film released in 2017. It’s available for viewing on Netflix.
