  • Fruitvale Station is a gut punch of a movie. By standing in solidarity with Oscar, it becomes an unstoppable cinematic force. show more

  • At the age of 27 Mr. Coogler seems to have it all, and have it firmly in place a clearsighted take on his subject (no airbrushing of flaws or foibles here, just confident brush strokes by a mature artist); a spare, spontaneous style that can go beyond naturalism into a state of poetic grace, and a gift for getting, or allowing, superb actors to give flawless performances. show more

  • It shows us the everyday pressures and problems, the joys and pleasures, experienced by someone moving through life. And then that BART train pulls into Fruitvale, and the rest is history. show more

    After watching this i'm left in shock. I did tear up at the end, but i was having trouble hearing anybody in the movie so it defeated half the purpose :( although this was a good reminder of how ****** up situations can get. its just the ending made me ball out with tears. must see 100%% recommendation to anyone.

    Awesome movie!!! Michael B. Jordan played his part superbly. When movie was over, I sat right there and cried. I was that moved. Best movie I have seen in a long time. I want to see it again, but I can\'t because it is too sad.
