'Fences'

Rental Only

A simple yet cinematically vital adaption of the 1985 play, which details 1950s Pittsburg and the evolving race relations of Black families and baseball. Fences is the most critically and commercially successful of these films, receiving four Oscar nominations and often ranked among the best films of 2016.

'A Journal For Jordan'

Rental Only

Michael B. Jordan plays Sergeant King, who, when deployed to Iraq in the early 2000s, receives a journal from his girlfriend to write down the life lessons he wants to share with his newborn son. Though A Journal For Jordan is Washington’s weakest film so far and a box office failure, this film is a solid tear-jerker that leaves you with a good message about family.

Worth watching? - 6/10

Though these are not the most convenient viewing options, all of these films are worth the time to appreciate Washington’s filmmaking abilities.
