Indulgent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if Rochelle Rose's powerhouse performance keeps one enthralled in Thompson's flawed yet forceful mono-drama Sledgehammer centerpiece a stunner

Don't see it if Yes, the political is personal but Thompson fails to provide enough connecting links in this slavery saga The rage is potent but exhausting

Provocative, Intense, Educational, Thought-provoking, Creative

See it if you are intrigued by the idea of a strong, Black woman describing her personal quest for identity. Interesting use of physical metaphor.

Don't see it if you have overdosed on one person shows with video backdrops and intense social messaging.

Score: 98%. "'salt.' is a poetic epitaph for those who have nothing concrete to grieve. It is a hymn of anger and of healing, of loss and empathy, of hope. I recommend that all attend, as you will find enlightenment, teachings, and possibly healings from Selina Thompson's story."
