I watched Beasts of No Nation yesterday and today, on the treadmill. Here’s my quick review.
Title: Beasts of No Nation
Director: Cary Fukunaga
Why I Watched It:
Netflix, which released this as its first original feature-length film, recommended it to me.
Cary Fukunaga was the director of the first season of True Detective.
This is an excellent movie, action-packed, with great characters, and an important political message that does not get in the way of a great experience. Highly recommended.
Best Thing About It:
Abraham Attah as Agu. Oh, and Stringer Bell.
Worst Thing About It:
This is a fictional story, but this sort of thing happens for too often to far too many children.
