Seven Pounds

118 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

I will not offer a review of this film, as that would be a waste of the little time we have together in this review space. The film does not deserve a judgment outside of the plain word "bad." Will Smith must go to the desert for 40 days and 40 nights and come back to the human family with a clear head and an empty stomach. Why? Because right now he is so full of shit. He needs a cleansing, a spiritual purge, and a reawakening. But to those who do watch Seven Pounds and see its shocking "revelation," I want to offer this reading or decoding of its narrative: The movie is about the death of the black male.
