“It’s only three steps into that ring,” Stallone’s Rocky says at one point, before calling it “the loneliest place in the world.” .
THREE STEPS... watching this film I see that this move choice to analyze that quote and personifies this same quote in film format.
THREE STEPS... What is your ring? What are your three steps? In this movie those three steps were in the form of questions?
Step One: What is your ring?
Step Two: Why are you in the ring?
Step Three: Who is in your corner?
This film is dark, quiet, jarring, intimate, and cerebral. This movie’s quotes, images, moments, actors, outfits will stick to you and wants you are hooked you are LOCKED IN until the end.

Great way to be on a ten hours road trip and not feel bored when you know you can play with your hair while he drives on, lol. Only thing is the twists didn't take that long to complete😂😂😂😂. Happy Thanksgiving, what you got going on, any special plans for the weekend? Remember if there aren't much to celebrate this weekend be thankful that you are alive. That fact alone should be enough to relax while you shoot for the next strategy. Enjoy your weekend!
WOW ✊🏽 #RepostSave @theblaquelioness with @repostsaveapp ・・・ During the Atlantic Slave Trade, many slaves were forced to shave their hair to be more ‘sanitary’ and to also move them away from their culture and identity.
But not all enslaved Africans would not keep their hairs cut. Many would braid their hairs tightly in cornrows and more “to maintain a neat and tidy appearance”.
Enslaved Africans also used cornrows to transfer and create maps to leave plantations and the home of their captors. This act of using hair as a tool for resistance is said to have been evident across South America.
It is most documented in Colombia where Benkos Bioho, a King captured from Africa by the Portuguese who escaped slavery, built San Basilio de Palenque, a village in Northern Colombia around the 17thcentury. Bioho created his own language as well as intelligence network and also came up with the idea to have women create maps and deliver messages through their cornrows.
The site Edtimes explains, “Since slaves were rarely given the privilege of writing material or even if they did have it, such kind of messages or maps getting in the wrong hands could create a lot of trouble for the people in question, cornrows were the perfect way to go about such things.
No one would question or think that one could hide entire maps in their hairstyle, so it was easy to circulate them without anyone finding out about it.” Afro-Colombia, Ziomara Asprilla Garcia, further explained to the Washington Post in the article, Afro-Colombian women braid messages of freedom in hairstyles: “In the time of slavery in Colombia, hair braiding was used to relay messages. For example, to signal that they wanted to escape, women would braid a hairstyle called departes. “It had thick, tight braids, braided closely to the scalp and was tied into buns on the top.
And another style had curved braids, tightly braided on their heads. The curved braids would represent the roads they would [use to] escape. In the braids, they also kept gold and hid seeds which, in the long run, helped them survive after they escaped.” -- face2faceafrica.com
