Kierre's Review of Is That Black Enough for You?!? 2022 ★★★

Watched Dec 03, 2022

Is that Black Enough for You is a Documentary Film now streaming on Netflix which is narrated by Film Critic, Elvis Mitchell. The film centers around black Actors /Actresses and black Directors dating back to the early days of film and leads us up to the 1970's and the Blaxploitation films of that era. Mitchell discusses many of the films during this period of time and has interviews with many prominent actors including Harry Belafonte, Laurence Fishburne, Whoopi Goldberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Mario Van Peebles, Billy Dee Williams, and even Zendaya.

I definitely did enjoy this film, but it felt just a bit long with a runtime of 2 hours and 15 minutes. Some films were given more screen time and others were kind of just glossed over. I also had some slight issue with Mitchell's narration as he comes across as being a bit condescending and throws a lot of shade at many white Directors, Actor, and Musicians throughout the film. He even throws some shade toward a few Black Actors and Directors as well. Overall, an interesting film but a bit uneven in parts.
