Now showing on Netflix, you will find this grimy crime thriller with a fair amount of gory scenes. There are a few different side bar storylines going on that don’t figure into the main storyline and aids in the way too long run time of just about 2 1/2 hours. If you’re bored watch it, if not I didn’t find it engaging and finished in two settings.

Coffee (a police officer newly dating a single mom) and Kareem (the 12 year old son of the single mom dating a police officer) set off on an unplanned cop caper. Lots of profanity from the cop lead; lots of nonsense scenes. Not a good of depiction of anything about Detroit.

Inspired by accounts about the first known black female entrepreneur, Madam C. J. Walker (Sarah Breedlove), who became a self made millionaire in America. She built her empire by selling hair care products to black women. This is a 4-part series on Netflix that’s informative and entertaining. I enjoyed learning more of her story which led me to further research accuracies from this series. It’s unknown what the sexual preference of Madam Walker’s daughter was yet this series makes a back storyline about her. Most importantly, I had only heard that Madam Walker invented the hot comb yet facts show otherwise. The hot comb seems to have been developed in France yet Madam Walker widened the teeth and then patented it. The series also depicts Alice Malone as a rival of Madam Walker. Actually, Walker was an apprentice to Malone; Walker used Malone’s recipe for the hair grower and started her own line with a mild change of the recipe. I knew very little about Alice Malone who also became a black female multi-millionaire in her own rights of hair products for black women. It was educational to learn about the successes of Madam Walker and Alice Malone. Worth checking out during this time when big screen movies are on hold due to the pandemic. Make sure you fact check.
