Oscar Project 2016: Straight Outta Compton

Movie: Straight Outta Compton

I came to this with only the vaguest of ideas of who these people were and quite enjoyed it anyway, which is a sign of its strength. (And not knowing much meant I was genuinely surprised by some of the big plot points, which I assume most viewers were not.) I was a little confused by some of the particulars, but I thought the movie did an excellent job of showing the importance of the characters to the development of the genre and to culture in general.

Availability: Available for digital purchase or rental.

Nominated in:

Writing (Original Screenplay): I'm slightly torn because I do think it could have done a bit more to establish the facts for audience members who weren't familiar with the players and story - but maybe they (I) were not really the target audience so it doesn't matter. The writing was quite good otherwise and it's certainly deserving.
