Straight Outta Compton
"The group NWA emerges from the mean streets of Compton in Los Angeles, California, in the mid-1980s and revolutionizes Hip Hop culture with their music and tales about life in the hood."
Absolutely amazing movie! Just go to your nearest theater, grab a ticket and enjoy a "biopic" mixed with urban culture, grittiness, music and Matthew Libatique's phenomenal cinematography, the best movie he has photographed ever under my point of view.
The production designing is really really mind blowing! Shane Valentino understood how the movie should look like and the approach that he took elevated Libatique's cinematography quite a lot, with all the practicals and designs.
The cast is just out of the world and they really believe they are the people who started NWA!
There is not too much to say about the movie itself as everything that you might want to know is in the current (September) American Cinematographer's issue, very good article by the way.
Very serious Oscar candidate (as every other biopic I suppose), in terms of Cinematography now Chivo has another contender!
Go to the movies and get a ride!
Have a good day!
