In response to In response to 0



Thought this was excellent, but as far as 2016 documentaries by talented black filmmakers that use potent archival footage to both underline the country's history of glaring racial inequities and draw parallels between mid-20th century and the present day, I may have narrowly preferred 13TH even if it's a little more "conventional" in structure and presentation.

This is a fucking awesome testament to Baldwin, though. He's electric. I could easily watch a few more volumes of documentaries just like this one that use basically just his words.

Some of my favorite parts of I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO were Baldwin waxing poetic about the underlying racial politics of classic era Hollywood films. Insightful and fascinating.
