Years ago a friend of mine asked me if I could have one movie on DVD what would it be?
I told him "Love Jones"
I saw it in theatres and it’s been on my mind since.
It was refreshing to see a movie where young african-americans are intelligent and know how to enjoy themselves by forming relationship with their loved ones and their friends.
Nia Long and Larenz Tate play these characters with incredible intelligence. They love, break up, contemplate, miss, and reconcile with each other.
"Love Jones" trascends racial boundaries and the cast was great!!
And for anyone who’s ever been in a relationship that had a problem, this movie illustrates the fact that you are not alone; and that problems can be overcome. The cinematography has an edge that gives the film a raw, gritty feel that’s refreshing in an era of Hollywood’s highly-polished, extra glossy look.
Don’t sleep on the soundtrack either, it’s hot!
This is a clip of my favorite scene called "Brotha To the Night". The band playing in the backround is simply awsome.
