Beyoncé practice ultraviolence of “Lemonade”.
the world went spinning when Beyoncé in April without warning released the album” Lemonade ” . Not just because it was a great album, but also for how it was presented. Unexpectedly and suddenly, in addition, in the company of an hour-long, artistically designed movie.
This film may be Friday night, starting at 22 and 24 hours ahead, watch HBO Nordic. It’s a good idea to do so. It is namely quite amazing.
On the one hand a visual bomb carpet of stylized environments, choreographed scenes similar rituals, an exhausting abundance of beautiful, dramatic and symbol-laden images.
On the other hand also something more. A film with a soundtrack album that portrays a hyper-date story about identity. If that being black woman in the United States who are still struggling with their history and their beliefs about a country with liberty and justice for all. This simultaneously be someone’s wife, someone’s mother, a father’s daughter and millions of other women’s role model. All expectations it carries. All power and all the inevitable shortcomings.
The poet Warshan Shire have contributed to the words they spoke parties but Beyoncé makes every moment to his story. She weaves together politics and private in a completely seamless manner. The anger against a society that is failing in its most basic promise of justice for all slide together with anger against the man who betrayed his promise to always be there. And one does not the other smaller or vice versa. It gets along perfectly understandable, natural and very poignant.
There is also a forward motion here. Like a good novel. Something happens in the story and the main character is not the same at the end as at its beginning. That’s what makes it a quite exceptional multi artwork.
And, of course, insanely neat. In the song “Hold Up” is a smiling Beyonce down a street with a big baseball bat in his hand and smashing car windows and fire hydrants with the same heedless joy. It is ultraviolence in its finest form. A truly irresistible scene.
HBO Nordic just doing “Lemonade” available in one measly day’s for the poor. But to see it should be, in one way or another.
Only 24 hours, then, “Lemonade” available on HBO Nordic, but it can also purchased DVD or for download through iTunes or tidal.
