The Men of Micheaux review the Academy's selections for the 2019 Oscar nominees, eagerly looking for slots to stick in the woefully under appreciated 'If Beale Street Could Talk'
Vince and Len start off 2019 in style and with much class, reviewing director Barry Jenkins' adaptation of the late James Baldwin's mesmerizing novel IF BEALE STREET TALK, featuring Stephen James, Regina King, Colman Domingo, Micheal Beach and the debut lead of Kiki Layne.
Fans of the show - our Micheaux Missionaries - really piped out loud about their favorite Black movie soundtrack which leads the Men down a rabbit hole of 80s music history before resting on the steady shores of director Barry Jenkins sophomore multiple Academy Award winning feature (Best Supporting Actor - Mahershala Ali; Best Picture).
The city of San Francisco is the playing field for two people making the most of a one-night stand in this exceptional slice of romance and life and exploration, a gorgeous debut for director Barry Jenkins.
