Great review Michael. It is one of your best ever.

Bravo.

Wow.  You have, indeed, done it again, Michael.

I may need to read this a few more times before viewing. 

Word of mouth had me heading to the theater during it's run to see what all the noise was about.  Then, I saw the TV trailer.

Quote:
I suspect the trailer alone was enough to scare off viewers.

And it did.  It just didn't strike me as a film that would interest me.  I put it in my list of films to see when the disc is released. 

Then, I heard more and more about the film as the Oscars approached and I saw more clips on the TV talk shows.  I became even further distanced from the subject material. 

My interest is now renewed.  Your review makes me want to see for myself if I will find the direction nimble, the performances compelling, the story interesting...the subject moving, and if it will touch that "place in my psyche" where race, sex, class and politics meet. 

Or, will I just shrug?

Uh, you did not consistently refer to the title of the film in your review as "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" What the F**K!?
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!
