The movie is both important in what it’s saying about freedom and democracy and enjoyable in its presentation of those themes.

Under ordinary circumstances, it would have been among a select group of “must see” releases during the summer of 2020. As things have turned out, it may be the only one.

More interested in applying non-standard cinematic tactics to enliven the facts rather than being enslaved by them.

Too little use of a rich palette of music and too much peddling of important themes like diversity and the evils of cultural appropriation.
