Antwone Fisher

It's hard to think of another movie named after its screenwriter—Antwone Fisher giving us a version of his real-life story. Denzel Washington's directorial debut reminds me of a 60s British movie called The Mark: it's liberal minded, heartwarming, sincere, and consequently somewhat old-fashioned and stodgy. It's the story of a black sailor (Derek Luke) with a violent temper who plumbs the depths of his bleak and abusive past aided by a sensitive psychiatrist (Washington). The sincerity and seeming authenticity of this effort carried and even moved me, though I'm not sure whether it taught me anything I didn't already know. With Joy Bryant. 113 min.
