Always a Good Day to be Black & Sexy!

"I saw this film and I must say I was impressed, because of the realness of it. The opening scene is surreal and will truly pull you into the film at once. The soundtrack could not be better and was very much a part of the movie as if it was almost a character itself. The film is basically divided into four parts with different vignettes on different people from interracial love (Black and Asian) to being caught up in the moment to the consequences that come along with adultery. The film is like a collection of four short stories that are not related, but form a complete whole. It reminded me of a modern day Blaxploitation movie.
This is definitely not a big budget blockbuster, but more of an Art House film that was nurtured with tender loving care like other Sundance films. Morally wise the film's characters can use some morals, but I guess when it comes down to it, it does reflect what goes on behind many closed doors. I loved how the film ended, because I think it'll inspire anyone to be proud of who they are and who the love. I think this is an excellent start for a young director. Reminds me of Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It". God is Love!"

"Having seen this crowd-pleasing film in theaters twice, I have to say that I felt both surprised and rewarded by the filmmaker's audacity and intelligence. This film is a real breath of fresh air, particularly in the often predictable world of black cinema. Told through a series of vignettes, the stories are both familiar and authentic ("Reciprocity's" give, but no take scenario between boy and girl made me grimace at some of my own sexual misadventures). However, their familiarity is part of the film's genius in that we so rarely see entertaining "real" depictions of black sexuality. While the title implies explicit sexuality, the stories are frank but never gratuitous. The filmmaker has the audacity to "keep it real" in ways that are both thought-provoking and to take bold chances to keep the film visually vibrant. The soundtrack, which deserves its own glowing review, is unbelievably tight and takes the film to another level as it captures the film's soulful heart. This is definitely one to watch!"

"This is a very good independent film. Something we rarely get to see on screen are true to life depictions of black sexual relationships, good & bad. The film is provocative without being gratuitous. We need more of these type of films that depict our life experiences as young black adults; something that hollywood, & even some "so called" independent black films still finds completely taboo."

"I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this film. The title of the film suggested gratuitous sex and graphic nudity, with perhaps very little substance. That title is deceptive, thank heavens. It consists of four vignettes about black relationships. However, the scenarios are so realistic, that they are cross ethnic and cultural and just ultimately reflect the human condition that we all share and that's simply trying to find reason in love, sex and relationships. The way it was shot and the direction and dialogue was so realistic that it almost felt as though it were a documentary at times. Great job by a new director. Loved it!"
