Critic Reviews for Selah and the Spades
It has a woozy, suggestive grip, dangling some questions, answering others. It isn't slick. It's singular - and Poe is clearly a name to watch.
Poe's feature debut, though, has a style all its own, spare but rich and able to make the umpteenth teen movie we've all seen feel fresh.
Poe - a new kid on the block who already feels like a major talent - calls a spade a spade but manages to be dreamily oblique, right to the end.
It's impassioned, informed and sometimes furious work that could find Poe being name-checked herself not too long from now.
Tayarisha Poe's empowerment of women, dissection of Black Excellence, and modern sensibility toward adolescent sexuality makes for an edgy feature debut.
