James III Jerah Milligan Jonathan Braylock

Denzel Washington won an Oscar for best actor in a movie that he wasn’t even the lead in, or was he? He was. Maybe. It’s not easy for a black man to win an Oscar. Jerah got himself a Carmel Swirl, which is something like progress. But hey, did Denzel black it up in this movie or is he just Denzel being Denzel? It’s a subtle distinction and we’re here to make that distinction. The Cause is about as real as it gets this week. Under heavy pressure from Jerah, James sticks to his rating because he’s a gentlemen and a scholar. Next week we review Blazing Saddles.
