    Just saw his film 'Restless City' on netflix yesterday. Although very slow paced (seemed like what the director was gunning for), it was an aesthetic masterpiece. Frame by frame, you couldn't help but relish the beauty of a story so simple yet beautifully told. I don't know if it was the movie, but i became really depressed through-out the whole day.

    I saw that on some site but can't verify it... IMDB doesn't show her in the credits. Anyone here have IMDB Pro?

    She's not in a major role - she plays the character's cousin who offers her advise during a dinner scene so that might explain why there is no IMDB credit for it.

    :roll :roll :roll at least her face, voice and work will be seen and heard at SUNDANCE. My sister does not despise her humble beginnings and I'm proud of her. You can continue with your negative reports while others are out living their dreams.

    Whether it's waka pass, extra, major or minor role, we've all seen what Ms. Bassey can do with the material afforded her. As we all know, there are no small roles, just small actors, and a small actor/tress, Ms. Bassy is not.

    Like My mom always said, when you have haterz, you know you have arrived, please let Ms. Bassey go 'head with her bad self.

    You have such a great heart, Kaymax. I know what you are trying to do. You are trying to let BB and her cousin down as easy as possible without hurting their feelings. I really admire you. But let the truth be told. Superstar actors/actresses don't take wakapass roles. Everybody idiot and their uncle knows that already. Can you imagine Angelina Jolie playing waka pass role in a movie. Bless your little heart, kaymax. You are such a nice person. I just hope BB appreciate this.

    Just finished Restless City. The pace was kinda slow but the imagery was on point. Dosunmo's background as a photographer comes across with the cinematography. I would like to see how he tackles a script with more dialogue and action.

    Not exactly, MV. Her's was more like a cameo appearance, not a wakapass. Remember Isiah Washington couldn't stop beaming about what a great, great talent she was. That's how essential her role was in the movie.
