16 March 1999 | goat's milk
| compelling and opinionated
A compelling movie. Van Peebles provides a lot of interesting historical information. He argues that while the portrayals of black characters have changed over the years, they are still as racist as ever, and that Hollywood suppresses black filmmakers. I find it a bit difficult to sympathize with him since he seems to think that the only movie in history that had any value is one he made himself. He barely gives Spike Lee and John Singleton a passing mention.
