Simply put, Neptune Frost was a revelation. This film will be talked about for years to come with its electrifying music and stunning visuals.
In the beginning, a coltan miner is struck, setting off a revolution. Those without authority raise their voice and have a vision to split governments and take power, but it goes way beyond that. Dimensions are chosen like cities and the costumes and makeup are simply remarkable and unforgettable.
The film really goes beyond the issues of political greed and corruption and covers sexuality; its pulse beats with such vitality. It must be seen on the big screen to be believed and experienced. Congratulations to directors Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman for creating this masterwork.
Neptune Frost will have a limited release June 3, 2022 to markets including New York City and Dallas, and will expand to other cities including Los Angeles on June 10, 2022.
