Saw this at a Cineworld preview. It has a familiar rapper movie plot that doesn’t bear too much scrutiny or need any elaboration. I really liked the unsuccessful meet up between the protagonist and her hero. Brilliantly done.
The production values aren’t high. The dialog is OK. The characters are both stereotypical and yet convincing. What I really enjoyed was the lo-fi approach and the sheer enthusiasm, grim reality, and fantasy elements all jammed into an almost-too-long triumph.
Beats the pants off so many big-budget let downs I’ve endured this summer. Go see it if you can.
