Movie Review by Rev. Bruce Bachelor Glader
Ryan Coogler’s entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is so much more than a superhero movie…
It is a film that celebrates African culture with a surprising expansiveness. It is a story about royalty, political alliances, and conflict that is Shakespearian in nature. It is an adventure movie that at times mimics a James Bond picture, with amazing inventions and complicated supervillains. It is also a thoughtful reimagining of Black History in which the imaginary country of Wakanda is an advanced (and hidden) civilization living in isolationist mode; America is the country in need.
