On The Knife's Edge

If you're not familiar with Nnamdi Asomugha yet -- he's a former football player turned actor -- then you are probably gonna wanna go ahead and familiarize yourselves with him right now, because Asomugha has just written and directed his first film (as well as acted the lead) and it's very good! It's called The Knife and it's about the immediate aftermath of a home invasion on a black family -- The Knife just premiered at Tribeca and I just reviewed it at Pajiba, read that right here. The film co-stars Aja Naomi King, Manny Jacinto (in a cop uniform), and Melissa Leo, and I think this one will definitely get some attention down the road -- I found it moving and incredibly tense at times; oh and Leo gives one of her best performances in awhile, too. So keep your eyes out for this one and Asomugha too!
