The last film for the political theme was Selma (2014) directed by Ava DuVernay and starring David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth, and many more. It’s actually an amazing cast, many who have become leads since this film. Jonathan (@berkreviews) selected this film and neither he nor Corey (@coreyrstarr) had seen it previously. They both knew this film would wreck them emotionally and were proven correct.

The last month of 2018 will have Jonathan and Corey looking back at the year and trying to catch a few films that they missed. Corey selected Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, Judith Roberts, and Ekaterina Samsonov. Jonathan just recently watched this film and isn’t thrilled about returning to it.
