From simple shots, to natural lighting and minimal music, everything in Fences is done with the intention to strip all the flair of filmmaking and make us focus in on the acting, and it’s done with stunning success. Denzel, Davis and co. bring to life the stunning, and frustratingly human characters of August Wilson’s acclaimed play. Never has an adaptation felt so much like the realm of the theater come to life in our world, a play right next door.
