I Am Not Your Negro : Powerful


Much of what I Am Not a Negro manages to capture about Baldwin is through recitation, relying on what may be one of Jacksons best performances, lingering somewhere between capturing the exact voice of the man and the more elusive passion behind his words. But nothing could ever prove the existence and necessity of Baldwin like seeing Baldwin himself. Peck brilliantly collides these halves, the represented and the literal, creating a document that launches words written decades ago firmly into the present day. http://www.cutprintfilm.com/reviews/i-am-not-your-negro/
