POSITIVES:Magnificent picture, story, direction, performances
NEGATIVES:Could have had a stronger emotional pull
We hold these truths to be self evident that Black November strikes immediately as an emotionally compelling story that brings to the forefront a highly relevant political issue – the struggle in the Niger Delta. There is no room allowed for guesswork in this movie, the writer gets that right out of the way by starting with a shot of the protagonist, Mbong Amata, locked in a shabby police cell with talks of her impending execution.
