This is a science-fiction satire from Netflix directed by debut filmmaker Juel Taylor, known for “Creed II” and “Space Jam.” The film stars Jamie Foxx, John Boyega, and Teyonah Parris.
Fontaine (Boyega) is a drug dealer in an African American neighborhood, facing various problems: rivals encroach on his territory, his pimp Slick (Foxx) refuses to pay debts, and at the end of the day, he gets killed. However, he wakes up the next day as if nothing happened. Slick and his acquaintance Yo-Yo are horrified and try to figure out the strange events unfolding in the ghetto.
While the film may not reach masterpiece status, it certainly deserves attention. It is original, comical, and distinctive, presenting itself as a cohesive work. Moreover, it delves deeper and has more substance than it might initially appear. Many critics have compared the film to “Get Out” and “Sorry to Bother You.”
