Review: (#1) Simple, yet mildly effective, but perhaps too simple. (#2) Evocative and perfectly toned to the concept of the film and American society in general. (#3) It takes too much time to figure out what the image is supposed to be and feels utterly reductive. (#4) While the symbolism makes sense, the end result is rather dull and overly simplified.
Trailer Rating: C+

Review: It’s surprising that Nate Parker is still being allowed to make films in Hollywood right now considering his sexual assault history, but here we are. While there are some intriguing prospects here, the trailer is framed entirely in anger without a hint of redemption and that just doesn’t make for a good film.
