Beyond the Lights

I had some reservations about aspects of Gina Prince-Bythewood's critique of celebrity itself, but overall Beyond the Lights is a gorgeous, well-acted romance and, very often, a devastating and necessary critique of the ouroboric nature of the modern fame machine that eschews the self-pity that weighs down male works on this subject even as it finds far more fertile ground for outrage in the general treatment of famous women.

  1. This is a fine love story with realistic characters that you can relate to. Both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker have the makings of bigger stars than they are now. I will be watching their careers with interest.

  3. It's a great love story with realistic characters that you can relate to. You can draw some good conclusions from this work. He helped me to settle down to some extent. Az I described it on my blog http://zycie-fotografa.pl/.

  4. It did not make any impression on me. I did not like the work, it was so bland. Evidently something was missing. Maybe something else from this producer will fall into my eye.

  6. I agree with you one hundred percent. This work is worth attention, mainly by heroes, just like my colleagues wrote above. On this portal http://doskonala-fotografia.pl/, and this http://robie-fotki.pl/ recently also in an interesting way have touched on this topic.

  7. Do not you think it's an exaggeration to praise something like that? After all, on this site http://ja-fotograf.pl/, or this one http://fotografia-dla-kazdego.pl/ got so low ratings that the head hurts.
