“‘Da 5 Bloods” Breadth Is Absolutely Necessary”

Honestly, don’t trust my evaluation of Da 5 Bloods. Upfront: I think it’s great. How great, or what kind of great, probably requires a second viewing, facilitated by a perusal of Netflix’s Twitter account, specifically this thread and this thread. Wherever I land on round 2*, I’m so, so, so glad this movie exists, and I’m so thankful Spike Lee is around making movies like it. Big ambition is always preferable to narrow vision.

*I will say this without hesitation: This is career-best from Delroy Lindo, one of film’s great underappreciated actors. He’s colossal here.
