"This film is brilliant. Directed and executive produced by Ava DuVernay, what's so seductive about this film is that it feels like how I would imagine a girls' night out would be. Here the women say what they want to, how they want to without feeling the need to censor themselves because the men are in the room. It's their game.. What I liked most about this film is its provocative, straight-forward commentary. Working with producer Shirley Salomon, cinematographer Bradford Young and editor Spence Averick, DuVernay has created a spicy, visually arresting work. It's a bold, soulful and colorful celebration of Black womanness. It celebrates Black women in way I haven't seen a film do so in a very long time. That I am convinced has a lot to do with the fact that a woman with keen sensitivity to the subject matter sat in the director's chair. DuVernay knows the Black woman's walk. Her story. She sympathizes with the Black female MC without pitying her. She empowers her subjects to shine. There is a level of commitment in this piece that sparkles in every single gorgeous frame and every single line."
