My review of Mudbound, for The Tulsa Voice. Set in 1940s Mississippi, it’s the story of two families – one white, one black – working one stretch of land, and the racism that still divided the nation in post-WWII America.
Quality filmmaking that takes few risks, Mudbound is “compelling but not daring” yet still “boasts stunning images”, and “its power is undeniable.”
