Collin (Daveed Diggs, Grammy winner for the Broadway version of Hamilton) is trying not to look anyone in the eye. His probation ends in just three days. His childhood friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), couldn't care less and keeps waving a gun in his face. One night, Collin witnesses a crime: a white police officer shoots a man running away from him. And Collin just keeps driving past. This dynamic buddy movie that talks about race, class divisions and police brutality, and takes a jab even at Hitchcock, is actually a musical: an accusation in the rhythm of hip-hop screamed straight into your face. Freestyling, Diggs and Casal talk about what causes them the most pain. And about Oakland, which was also recently shown in Black Panther. About where they're from and who they know well, observing how it is slowly changing beyond recognition. They wonder why the smoothie at a local store suddenly costs as much as "the blood of Christ." Good question.
