Raoul Peck - 2016 - 95m - No Matinees
"One of the best movies you are likely to see this year" - Manhola Dargis, The New York Times
In his new film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished - a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America. With the voice of Samuel L. Jackson!
“You would be hard-pressed to find a movie that speaks to the present moment with greater clarity and force, insisting on uncomfortable truths and drawing stark lessons from the shadows of history.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
“This Oscar-nominated portrait of James Baldwin uses the author's words to bridge the civil-rights past with our racially incendiary present. It's unmissable and unforgettable.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“A compelling document that works as a mini-history of black racial identity in America from the mid- to late-20th century and beyond.” – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
