Black is King (2020)
IMDb rating: 5.6/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 100%
Beyoncé delivers a powerful, riveting film, following a young king’s journey on his path to love and self-identity.
Critics have praised the 80-minute movie, with Vulture saying, “It’s an inclusive experience and a gorgeous tale of metaphysical Afrofuturism. For what it is, it’s great. The question once more is: How does she top this?”, and NPR writing that “It’s obvious that she has been very deliberate about who she works with, what she says, what it looks like. And it makes a powerful statement when you bring it all together.”
