The best Race relations film HANDS DOWN!
Do you know how CRASH one the Academy Award for best film?! Well, I HATED CRASH! When people tell me why, I tell them that the only reason it won the best film is that the masses did not want to give it to Broke Back Mountain! SECRET: The real reason is that in my mind I was comparing it to this film. A DAY IN BLACK AND WHITE! There is no comparison! This film covers EVERY TOPIC I had seen or heard in my 42 years on this earth form BLACKS AND WHITES and from WOMEN AND MEN! It even brought to light some prejudices that had crept into my subconscious, both regarding BLACK AND WHITES! (NOTE: I am Black man living in the suburbs and date both black and white. I also have very close relatives that are White!) On a personal note, when people want to start those long dreary conversations on race, I refer them to this movie immediately, so it can save a LOT of time! IT IS THAT GOOD. ENTERTAINING, and INFORMATIVE!
