Quick-Thoughts: Dee Rees’ Pariah (2011)

Why did so many of my high school relationships start from one another bragging about how chad and underground our music tastes were? Pretentiousness brings us together, ay? 

Anyways, more movies please featuring characters who’re all prone to the occasional faults (humans be moody!) that are furthermore viewed with such an objective, impartial gaze like Dee Rees’ whether it’s aimed at the protagonists or antagonists. The realism and believability sky rockets just from such a simple detail fix rather than idolizing specific individuals and sidelining the rest.

Verdict: B-

“Pariah” is now available to stream on HBO Max.
