Now Streaming On Netflix: AFFRM's Array Releases Storm Saulter's 'Better Mus Come'

On the heels of its successful, workmanlike theatrical run, AFFRM’s new multi-platform label ARRAY Releasing has released Storm Saulter’s acclaimed romantic drama Better Mus’ Come, on Netflix’s streaming VOD service, this week.

The debut feature from writer/director Saulter, tells the tale of a collision of passion, politics and poverty, against a tumultuous 1970s Jamaica backdrop, as rival gangs enlisted by warring political factions, disrupt the democratic process.

Better Mus Come stars Sheldon Shepherd, Nicole Grey, Ricardo Orgill, Everaldo Creary, and Roger Guenveur Smith.

AFFRM’s first pick-up of 2013 counts, among its accolades, Best Feature Award winner at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival as well as the Bahamas Intl Film Festival; Best Director Award at the Pan-African Film Festival; and the Best Actor Award at the American Black Film Festival.

Watch the first 7 minutes of Better Mus Come below to whet your appetite, and then check out the full film on Netflix:

They say death comes in 3's.

I've seen John Singleton's Boyz In The Hood, Gavin Hood's "Tsotsi In The Hood", and now Better Mus' Come to the hood.

Listen folks, I so much wanted to enjoy this film, but the hood has worn me out. There we were, me and my lady, she had fixed a nice dinner to go along with what I thought would be a romantic drama. However, I am sorry, there was nothing romantic about this version of Boyz in Jamaica's hood. There was however plenty of drama in the form of violence and chase scenes down poverty ridden back alleys.

Minus Roger Guenveur Smith's two minute drive by, one saving grace for this thug revolt flick was the acting. Everyone did an admirable job, especially the lead male actor. But again, the story was basically the same ol' same ol' kill him before he kills thee, and lets plot our attack back in the hood while we smoke some Jamaican red hair.

I am sorry, I wanted to love this film but it left me brokenhearted.

critical acclaim
