Black Panther - Film
Ended April 14

Slate Magazine sums up Black Panther best: a film that isn’t just great for what it is, but great for what it says. Marvel’s newest superhero movie is about what it means to be black in both America and Africa—and, more broadly, in the world. Thrilling, moving, provocative and funny, this $900-million phenomenon continues to upend the white-bread business of blockbustering. Chadwick Boseman (Marshall) gives a magnetic, slow-burning performance as the African king/superhero with terrific support from an all-star cast (Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker). Black Panther plays like an alternative Macbeth, with characters riven by ambition, righteousness, the hum of supernatural forces—and REALLY cool toys. Director Ryan Coogler: we thank you.
