Emergency (2022). Emergency: Directed by Carey Williams. With RJ Cyler, Donald Elise Watkins, Sebastian Chacon, Sabrina Carpenter. Ready for a night of legendary partying, three college students must weigh the pros and cons of calling the police when faced with an unexpected situation.
“Starting off as the next Pineapple Express or Superbad, it doesnu0026#39;t take long for Emergency to prove to be much deeper than another party comedy. Director Carey Williams stated his movie was ultimately a love story between two friends, but even an intro such as that is not preparation enough for the emotional ride that proceeds it. Countless movies provide a window into how complicated and difficult the black experience in America can be, but rarely does a filmmaker provide such an intimate and personal tale to illuminate the horrors.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs tense as Emergency can be, rarely is a movie so fun. Experiencing life alongside Kunle and Sean was exciting! The difficulty of telling a great all-in-one-night story is no match for these filmmakers. You get to know these men so deeply in a mere hour and a half despite following them through a night of absolute chaos. You learn so much of the dichotomy Kunle balances while preparing for his entrance into Princeton and keeping his party crazed best friend satisfied. Equally, you get a look into the intricate emotions Sean is masking to come off as tough, confident, and indifferent.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI laughed, I cried, I held my breath for an embarrassing amount of time. I was blown away by how incredibly put together this movie was. The directing was that of a true artist. Taking the time to show the calm of a mailbox or a living room that was the scene of mayhem and stress hours prior is the epitome of tact. Carey Williams is someone that deserves all the accolades coming his way. The art heu0026#39;s bringing is truly magnificent.”
