Monsters and Men ()

Sep 28, 2018 | R | 95 min
  Genre: Drama
  Director: Reinaldo Marcus Green
  Writer: Reinaldo Marcus Green

  Synopsis: The aftermath of a police killing of a black man, told through the eyes of the bystander who filmed the act, an African-American police officer and a high-school baseball phenom inspired to take a stand. Structured in an unusual (and ultimately unsatisfying) "La Ronde"-like format, whose focus shifts from one protagonist to the next, spending roughly half an hour with each without resolving any of their individual stories along the way, "Monsters and Men" stands apart from such police-shooting melodramas as Charles Burnett’s "The Glass Shield" or last year’s "Detroit." Whereas those movies veer toward outrage and indignation, Green (brother of "Gun Hill Road" director Rashaad Ernesto Green) attempts a more soft-spoken, empathy-driven approach in hope that audiences who have previously reached their own conclusions will consider other sides of the picture.
