Quick-Thoughts: Steve McQueen’s Education

It’s Matilda-esc. 

Education is a right. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you did, how you were born; you deserve to be taught what the majority is being taught whether or not those pieces will guarantee your success in the world. Education also warrants to be effective, and everyday, even today, it must be fought for improvement because, damn, is it far from perfect and near close to corrupted. The fifth and final film of Steve McQueen’s Small Axe series may be admittedly his most unimpressively directed and shot of the basket, but I’d be lying if I said it didn’t have one of the most important messages that this five-part saga has had to offer.

The inclusion of space imagery was pretty genius though. That stuff stuck out like a sore thumb. 

Verdict: B-
