HE Quote #1: “Fences is straight, plain, direct. Life is hard, pain is passed along, pride is a burden, the burden is a bitch. This is a great film.” HE Quote #2: “Denzel Washington’s performance is eloquent, emotionally affecting, smooth and damn near close to perfect…heartfelt and beautifully refined.” HE Quote #3: “Fences for Best Pic, Best Director, Best Actor (Denzel), Best Supporting Actor & Actress (Mykelti Williamson, Viola Davis)…count on it.”
