Fruitvale Station won the top prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, which means one of three things: 1) The contest is rigged. Sundance was in the film credits, a direct conflict of interest; 2) There weren’t any good movies at Sundance this year; or 3) The judges are incompetent.
On the positive side, the performances and general production of the movie were very good. My problem is that the story was weak, and the star of the story is not a sympathetic character. 5/10.
