Tribes (2020) Santa Barbara Film Festival 2020

Robbers take over a NYC Subway Car and begin to rob everyone in the car until one of them refuses to rob his people. This sparks a discussion about race and society.

Once you get past that the film is not set set in anything remotely like a NYC subway car this social commentary film is amusing. There are some genuine laughs here as the false divisions of society are broken apart and examined.

Pure polemic the film is simply a discussion between the robbers and the people on the train about tribes and where we all belong. It runs a course that is very close to be being overly preachy however the shortness of the run time keeps it breezy and on point.

Worth a look
