The Big Finish

I still want to know how the hell she got in that tree. Calling the cops for black people in emergency situations is always polarizing for us because we know the worst case outcome of that interaction could result in losing our life. That is why it is best to just take our chances because it is the best outcome for our personal well being. The acting was good as Cyler is really charismatic and Carpenter is special as usual. This picture dives into the pros and cons of consulting law enforcement and does so in an honest yet humorous demeanor. The beginning of this film gave me “Dear White People” vibes with the satire but starts to take itself more seriously during the rising action. The final shot was much felt because the sound of a siren could have post traumatic effects for those that have bad encounters with the police. Doing the right thing sometimes can get you into a lot of trouble even if it means helping another, however the experience can have long unforeseen consequences.
