I recently watched “Luv” on Netflix. I remember hearing about the film, a few months ago, but lost track of it. So, after watching the movie, I am surprised it hasn’t received more buzz. The film offers great performances from folks like “Allstate” man–Dennis Haysbert, new/young actor–Michael Rainey Jr, and rapper– Common.
The representations of black women are brief (although it was great to see the underrated Lonette McKee), but that’s okay, as the film is about what it is to be a man/(black)masculinity. It’s disturbing to see what the young boy witnesses, as he spends a day with his rough/around the way uncle, Wood.
However, the film is surprisingly moving, I teared up a few times. I would recommend it. The film offers a fresh take on an “urban” story.
