American Milkshake

In mid-1990s America, we follow the tragic sex life of Jolie Jolson, a wannabe thug (and great-great-grandson of legendary vaudevillian Al Jolson) in suburban Washington as he strives to become something he can never be – black.

  • ★★★★ review by simplybennett on Letterboxd

    Strange and slow, but I couldn't help loving this movie. Interesting commentary on race, high school basketball culture and politics and teenage growing pains. Seemingly superficial but addressing profound issues in compelling ways, if nothing else this film is a fascinating social commentary of some particularly Usamerican institutions and rites of passage.
