Watched Barry on Netflix

Barry (Netflix Originals)
A young Barack Obama forges his identity while dealing with race, divergent cultures and ordinary life as a New York City college student.

I wish I could say I liked this more, but there was no real drama or tension in the picture at all. The characters were all flat and seemingly one dimensional. I can’t even say it worked as an art-house film. Perhaps if I hadn’t known it was Barack Obama being portrayed and his signing the letter “Barack” at the end was the kicker, then perhaps it may have had some impact, but the whole affair was just flat.
