SEE YOU YESTERDAY is a minor-key delight. Riffing a lot on BACK TO THE FUTIRE II but with punchy social commentary, the film has a special guest star in an early scene, and his appearance would have been enough, but they have him say his catchphrase as well. The movie is carried by two effortlessly compelling performances from Eden Duncan-Smith and Danté Crichlow as time-jumping BFFs. It manages to be stylish, bright and breezy whilst never losing sight of what matters. It’s far more relevant to what’s going on in the world right now than many bigger-budgeted sci-fis and marks director and co-writer Stefon Bristol out as a a distinct artistic voice. Much like something like WE ARE THE BEST! it would be a shame if more pre-teens (especially black pre-teens) didn’t see this just because of a silly thing like strong language. But it’s on Netflix so who’s stopping them…SSP
