Selma – ***

Posted: April 6, 2015 in 2014, Drama, Historical, USA, XXX

David Oyelowo should have at least gotten nominated for his empowering interpretation of Martin Luther King. He is incredible. His speeches are immaculate and his gestures and looks outshine a thousand words. This is really a great performance.

There are more positive things about this historical account of the 1964 Selma events. The soundtrack for instance, which is very varied and has songs from the sixties combined with new compositions by Fink and John Legend. The camerawork is great too and the story is often told by strong images and scenes.

There are some negative points as well: not all the acting is good and the character depiction is very stereotypical. But all in all it’s definitely worth watching!

Just not before you want to party the night away…
