“The performances have a lovely informality,
with indie film mainstay Larry Fessenden showing up as a sympathetic McDonald’s colleague
and Luqmaan-Harris nicely capturing the deflating depression of struggling with poverty,
and being entirely “too good” for that.
Kitzer makes good use of a modest selection of locations,
streets, apartments, subway platforms and riverside scenes.
The spare plot and limited locations suits the indie nature of it all…
Like Red Hook itself, “Good Funk” is worth a look,
even if you know you’ll need to move on
to find something and some place with more excitement in it.”
