High Flying Bird

Being the first full film shot completely from an iPhone, going into this movie I knew that it would be a unique experience. With a world wide famous director in Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11-13, Erin Brockovich) and a cast of actors/actresses on the top of their game in Andre Holland (AHS, Moonlight), Zazie Beats (Deadpool 2, Joker), Melvin Greg (American Vandal). This film was very unique in every way from style of shooting, camera choice, story, cast, cameos, and soundtrack. Following a NBA agent trying to get his client a rookie deal during the lockout, he realizes he may have to change the rules of the game to make a lasting positive impact for the players of the game he loves. This film reminds me alot in pacing and vibe overall of Uncut Gems. If you were a fan of that, this will be right up your alley. It’s a little slow with the 1 hour and 33 minute runtime being filled with lots of stress, unconfidence in the future, but overall it’s very entertaining as he fights to get his client the best deal he can and even makes some lasting changes that affect the way rookie contracts are approached in the professional basketball world. Also Featuring supporting cast of Zachary Quinto and Kyle McLachlan adding the antigonistic elements in the film, I would rate this one pretty high with a 9/10. If you are a fan of films by Guy Ritchie, give this a shot too. In the same vein of mystery that he likes to do.
