Flick In A Limerick

A photographer and a poet share an instant connection
Both are uncommitted about the relationships direction
A battle of sexes
Jealousy from exes
Threaten to ruin each other’s affection

Nose Candy

“Who am I? It’s not important. But me they call me brother to the night. And right now I’m the blues in your left thigh trying to become the funk in your right.”

“There is more topics besides sex.”
“Like what?”
“Love. But you wouldn’t know anything about that.”

“Persistence you’d be how surprised that will get you.”

“This ain’t a love thing. We just kicking it’s sooooo.”

“The difference is that I get to quit my job you are always fired.”

“It is funny what you can do in front of a room full of people that you can’t seem to do in front of one person.”

The Big Finish

Is that all right? This urban cult classic tells the story of a young African-American couple as they attempt to navigate their roller coaster of a romance. Larenz Tate is definitely in his element displaying incredible versatility and charisma. A lot of things don’t age well in this piece such as getting a girls address from the back of a check, typewriters and pagers etc. However one thing that did manage to age well is 90’s Nia Long as her beauty jumps off of the screen. She is incredible here as it is no wonder why she was the “It Girl” during the time period. Appropriately named Wood, every guy has that one dick of a friend who is always plotting to make a move on your girl. Jazz adds a soulful seduction to certain shots as well as the hitting of Chicago rain. Also the writing especially in the club performance scenes is impeccable. Gaining an advantage in a new relationship is difficult but having the courage to make the first move at the risk of losing it all is definitely worth the reward.
