Rich with technical strategies that enhance our view into Femi's emotions, The Last Tree uses slow-motion, diffused sound, and many Spike Lee-like camera shots to make the story extremely personal and unique.

As "The Last Tree" ends with the potential of better things for Femi, an audience may walk away convinced of its filmmaker's promise and looking forward to seeing it blossom in full.

I can't help but be impressed by Amoo's attempts to direct a familiar narrative with such a complicated set of questions.

Culture shock, abandonment issues and inner-city turmoil produce a PTSD that is rarely acknowledged in film in this way. For that, The Last Tree is a triumph.
