Da 5 Bloods
This is about four African-American Vietnam vets who return to their country in search of a fallen comrade’s body — and a stash of gold. In this Spike Lee move, Four African American vets battle the forces of man and nature when they return to Vietnam seeking the remains of their fallen squad leader and the gold fortune he helped them hide. You will find out about an adventure but much more about a series of political statements. In addition, you will see America’s casual abuse of its Black citizens, and the importance of unity in the face of oppression and opportunity alike.
With his debts mounting and angry collectors closing in, a fast-talking New York City jeweler risks everything in hopes of staying afloat and alive.

The dazzle of the “uncut gems” in the title is not a surface shine. It glows at the center of the earth, it burns in Howard’s core. See the trailer below.
