What to Watch this July…

 

The big national release in July is ‘Whitney‘ – the in-depth look at the life and music of Whitney Houston (officially approved by her family). It features some poignant revelations from those close to her.

 

 

Watch ‘Grenfell‘ on iPlayer, the BBC’s meticulous feature-length documentary about the fire. It draws from hundreds of hours of interview, archive, social media content and observational footage to form a compelling, moving and lasting record of the events before, during and after the fire. It features intimate accounts from many of the men, women and children whose lives were forever intertwined and irrevocably changed that night – some of whom have never spoken publicly before.

 

 

Sorry to Bother You‘ Is a sci-fi set film set in an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Standfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.

 

 

Equalizer 2‘ – Denzel Washington is back as Robert McCall, who serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed, but how far will he go when it’s someone he loves?

 

 

Blindspotting‘- lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of a rapidly gentrifying Oakland (critics review: ‘The most exciting cinematic take on contemporary race relations since “Do the Right Thing” nearly 30 years ago’).
