Customer Review

on March 18, 2009
The film Pressure will touch and reach those who have lived this kind of existence as I did. Though one or two of the performances fell too heavily into caricature and stereotype, overall the characters delivered realistic, gritty performances that evoked a moody tension that were seductive and charming. This film is important because there are not many more like it in existence (if any). I am a fashion designer, amateur writer and photographer. I sourced this film for research purposes above all, though, I am a world cinema enthusiast. I was more than satisfied to view this film for the aesthetic properties relating to social and cultural studies, however, had I not had this interest, the film would have lost some of its significance and value as the narrative I found a little too simplistically handled. The scenes were shot beautifully, not suffering from a modest budget; in fact this may have added some quasi-documentary quality that characterized the films appearance.

Nigger, well this just blew my mind. It was the first time I saw Baldwin or Gregory speak. I found this film fascinating and inspirational.
