SWEETWATER doesn’t blink, doesn’t shy away, mostly certainly doesn’t shrug as it mesmerizes and resonates and, again, is sweeping in scope in its way of telling the bitter-sweet epic saga of Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton. The elements that make a movie a 5-star movie soar most certainly beyond imagination in this film: Casting – wisely selected. Plot and subplots – astutely rendered. Settings & themes & subthemes – marvelously done. Review by Gregg W. Morris
Bravura story telling by Canadian Director Jamie Kastner about Ishmael Muslim Ali, one of four men convicted of murdering eight people at a swank golf course in St. Croix , U.S. Virgin Islands, 1972, and who 12 years later hijacked an American Airlines passenger jet to Cuba where, after a short stay in an island prison, was granted political asylum.
