"[D]ebuting director Ryan Coogler creates a bruising masterpiece."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 4 -- "FRUITVALE STATION is a profoundly compelling, gut-wrenching and important film."USA Today "Made with assurance and deep emotion, FRUITVALE STATION is more than a remarkable directing debut for 26-year-old Ryan Coogler. It's an outstanding film by any standard."Los Angeles Times "FRUITVALE STATION is a directorial debut of limitless promise; as a first feature it's almost miraculous."Wall Street Journal "[A] powerful and sensitive debut feature....Everything it has to say about class, masculinity and the tricky relations among different kinds of people in a proudly diverse and liberal metropolis is embedded in details of character and place."New York Times 4 stars out of 4 -- "FRUITVALE STATION is about what we can imagine when we cast our gaze across the longstanding divides in this persistently, cancerously segregated American society."RogerEbert.com "[Jordan] is, unquestionably, the films greatest asset....The actor relocates some of the gravity of his devastating arc on 'The Wire'..."A.V. Club "Jordan's performance is grippingly subtle....It's great political filmmaking, period." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly "The intimacy of debut writer-director Ryan Cooglers approach to the film and the no-frills, believably real quality of the main performances combine to drive the senselessness of Oscars killing home with visceral impact."Chicago Sun-Times9.313317
