Fruitvale Station (E.Luck)
Fruitvale Station is a movie based on a real life situation and this makes the impact hit a lot harder. Through out [one word] the movie we follow the protagonist Oscar (Michael B. Jordan) on what seems to be the course of two to three days [Is this true? Or is the twenty-four hour period stretched out by the filmmaker's (director Ryan Coogler) use of flashback). We follow him and feel his struggles of loss of job and the issues that come along with being a ex-con and the temptations of going back to his old life as a drug dealer in order to find [???] and provide for his family. We also get to see his loves, his young daughter and his girlfriend and with the help of the director we see life how Oscar sees it. Before watching this movie in class I watched it at my house, and while I watched it I heard sirens passing the street and it made the movie so much more real [run-on].
This movie caused thoughts and emotions to come out, and I know that it could affect [or effect?] even the coldest of people. When Oscar is picking up his daughter, and they start to race back to the car, the only thought that goes through the viewers head is that he is a real person and it was the small things like that, that allowed us to connect to a character in such a short time and makes the end of the movie where he is murdered even worse [Nice observation].
Overall I would give this movie a 10/10 because every part of this movie is thought out and executed to the fullest.
