Atom User Reviews for Queen & Slim
My friends and I all walked out early because we were falling asleep.
sad and deep
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 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.
It was intense, funny, and tear jerking. The actors did a fantastic job! In my opinion it's a must see.
A must see!!!! Great director and cast !
Great story! I also loved the message it brought to the screen. Overall good movie!
a movie that EVERYONE must go see. from the beginning to the end.
All over emotions on this one!
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🤗
One of the best movies I've ever seen. From the story to the cast to the music. loved it
Queen & Slim is a must see!!! You will laugh and cry.
Lame and predictable. The only thing I take away after watching this movie is Hollywood is putting out a lot of movies lately that further push agendas that continue to push the division of whites & blacks. And that every white cop just wants to go out shooting black folks. It’s just sad Hollywood focuses on division instead of unity.
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.
