I saw the show spin off before this but it still works as a prequel to that. Possibly loses a bit watching it that way as you are already familiar with the leads, so do it the other way around if you are still fresh.

A character-driven show that seems unfortunately reluctant to delve too deeply into its numerous, interesting characters. A bit of a shame, but not uncommon, I suppose. Interesting social commentary, and a few pretty good jokes, though.

I knew about this movie after the series and I have to say the movie is sort of obsolete now. Everything here is made better in the series while sharing director, writer, even some actors... The team has certainly improved and the choral format works better as a series than a movie. If you watched the movie first and didn't specially like it, give the series a chance.

The TV show is much better but this still makes the point it's trying to. Dialogue is a little hammy but that's it's purpose. It's sorta tryin to be a degrassi kind of thing.

It tackles its subject matter with some finesse, examining race relations with a fairly even approach. There are a bunch of different perspectives, which is nice, and through the good performances we got to see them fleshed out a fair bit. My knock on it, and what prevents it from being great, is that there are times that it's clearly attempting humour but can't usually get there. Good premise, and the execution as a drama was admirable, but it's not overly funny.

Definitely directed toward a white audience given its Racism 101 stance. There was some interesting ideas regarding the construction of black identity with Troy's character but it was only hinted toward. Disliked the Sam's arc super strongly. But all of that aside (can you tell I had high expectations?) its refreshing to watch a movie about black kids that isnt like poverty porn.

A great satirical social commentary, which feels way too relevant. The film raises several questions, but doesn't necessarily place the blame on any one group, but tries to show an overall view of things. I liked that it didn't have to resort to violence to get the point across.

The conceit was a clever way to approach the issue in a nuanced way. Provocative in the good sense of the term--makes you think about things from a varying perspectives and (mostly) gives each perspective a fair shake. But this was also dragged down by a lot of failed attempts at humor and some poor acting (but the two female leads were both great).

Nice to see more films addressing black issues [or, perhaps more accurately, "white issues," as Chris Rock would tell us] and shit, but... would not be surprised if some of the crap in here was imposed by clueless white producers.

About as promising as debut features get. Looks to be aimless and esoteric for at least the first half hour, but that Altman reference isn't for nothing: eventually it develops into a daunting ensemble film with a complex story, nuanced politics, and an array of characters that are introduced as easily digestible "types" before deepening almost as if defying the film's preordained role for them.

All the little nuances of racial tension in America are presented along with all the different tropes that play their part. Simien did a great job covering all the bases and his message stays strong until the end. I'm almost a little afraid to critique what I didn't like about the film which is mostly the fact that I didn't think it was a very good movie. Simien's awareness to this by making Sam's first review echo this sentiment plays right into the wittiness of his writing capability.

At times it stretches credulity, and then you find out that stuff like this actually happens. It goes from hilarious to shocking and back to hilarious again, then shocking again, and then quite touching, and ends on hilarious. I LOVED it.

Total bait and switch from the trailer. The trailer presents a witty fast paced comedy that deals with modern day racial issues. What the audience is instead given is a slow paced satire that's too dry to foster any laughs. The worst part though, is how painfully stilted the dialogue is. Every line feels like some bullshit racism/social justice monologue that's so contrived it could only take place in one of writer/director Justin Simien's wet dreams.

Such a metodic and classy take on race that dares -- oh -- to be funny! Like a Spike Lee-meets-Wes Anderson narrative that has a 70s look and an arresting combination of rage and brightness.

This film had strong performances all around, but I found Sam and Lionel to certainly be the most affecting. Perhaps what I enjoyed most about this film is that it truly offered no easy answers; instead, it approaches the problems that arise from racism in all their facets (institutional, internalized, or even outright etc.), while dodging any clear, conclusive answer. At its heart, it explores a relationship of power dynamics as historic tools of exclusion and inclusion. Powerful stuff.

"Dear White People" only scratches the surface of contemporary race relations in America, but there are enough laughs and it at least tries to tackle enough themes to introduce many to the ongoing conversation.
