Monsters and Men (15)

USA | 2018 | 95' | Reinaldo Marcus Green

One night, in front of a bodega in Brooklyn's Bed-Stuy neighborhood, Manny Ortega witnesses a white police officer wrongfully gun down a neighborhood street hustler and Manny films the incident on his phone. Now he's faced with a dilemma: release the video and bring unwanted exposure to himself and his family, or keep the video private and be complicit in the injustice?

With a deep sense of humanity and a deft directorial hand, Reinaldo Marcus Green smartly reformulates the traditional construction of "protagonist" to magnify the power of perspective in this ambitious picture.


"This is a deep, moving film about the realities of communities that have racially charged relationships with police. "
Common Sense Media
"...there's no denying the righteous indignation that fuels Monsters and Men, a powerhouse that couldn't be more timely or necessary"
Rolling Stone
"The words “black lives matter” are never actually spoken in Monsters and Men, but they inform every scene of this ambitious debut feature from the writer and director Reinaldo Marcus Green."
New York Times
