Movie Reviews:

  • SWITCH.: ‘Harriet’ stumbles in its clichéd storytelling and focus on going for gold – but that’s not to undermine the fantastic acting, groundbreaking music, and of course the incredible true story of Harriet Tubman’s bravery. With Black Lives Matter, the fight to end violence and systemic racism towards black people is rooted in the United States’ DNA and ‘Harriet’, and sadly serves as yet another reminder of the constant mistreatment of African Americans. Films about slavery are still relevant, as that same discrimination is still taking place today. I want to end with lyrics from the film’s song ‘Stand Up’ which feel very potent: “I’m going to stand up, take my people with me, together we are going, to a brand-new home.“
