“Visually forceful and narratively understated, the verité-influenced film leans hard on its lush black and white cinematography in its attempt to offer a poetic snapshot of African-American life in the Deep South.”

—Ben Croll: Indiewire

“Shot with grace and sensitivity in black and white using available and natural light, What You Gonna Do is a visual treat, the easiest on the eye of all the director’s films to date. It is also, for all its unevenness, a stirring, committed portrait of black lives at a crossroads in the American South.”
—Lee Marshal: Screen Daily

“A passionate sketch dedicated to the black lives based on the south highways in Northamerica.”
—Screen Daily
