Let's Talk 'See You Tomorrow,' Where 'Back to the Future' Meets Systemic Racism
This week we talk about Netflix's Spike Lee-produced "See You Yesterday," which combines the time-travel goofiness of "Back to the Future" with the social criticism of "Boys N the Hood" (RIP, John Singleton).
Does it work? We're a little divided. We appreciate that the protagonist is a young, black and female scientist (Eden-Duncan Smith). We love seeing Marty McFly himself, Michael J. Fox, reading Octavia E. Butler's time-travel classic "Kindred."
But the question is how well the film melds silliness with seriousness. We have a good honest discussion, and ultimately we're glad this story exists in the world. We hope you enjoy it.
