It was intense, funny, and tear jerking. The actors did a fantastic job! In my opinion it's a must see.

this movie does a superb job of speaking on issues that should no longer be current. it pulls at all the emotions but beautifully breaks up the tension.

Excellent movie showing the crooked white cops black people have to deal with. Nothing better than seeing that white cop get his head bust open🤗

Ok, so the movie is beautiful, the cast is great with an even better chemistry but they’re some large plot holes and inconsistencies.

This movie let me down in a way that can only be summarized like this: it's like listening to your favorite musician's experimental album that doesn't have a single track that you really like.

Beautiful story that captures many aspects of America. The hate and misunderstanding between Blacks and Whites, how the actions adults take can be misinterpreted by kids, how there are beautiful people in all sides (Blacks, Whites, Police, Urban areas), greed, and most importantly, LOVE.

There’s a particular thrill when all of a film’s many story elements — here, so dense with symbolism — come together with such thematic and emotional vigor. That intensity pairs exquisitely with the tenderness the film never wants to lose sight of.

Queen Slim’s cumulative impact mostly justifies the tonal inconsistencies, leaving the viewer with a troubling look at a society in which the marginalised always feel hunted.

A less muddled, less self-conscious Queen Slim could have been an indelible waking dream. Instead, it's hit-and-miss. But Waithe and Matsoukas are on to something, and it's the undercurrents rather than the filmmakers' more obvious exertions that hit the mark.
