Directed by Ang Lee. Great cast with Tobey Maguire, Christina Rcci, Elijah Wood, Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver and Katie Holmes. Reminds me somewhat of American Beauty. Highly recommend. Criterion Collection Spine #426.
What an awesome movie. I'm down with anything that shows how evil the FBI is. Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield are both amazing in this. The only thing that I don't understand, which has nothing to do with the making of this movie, is how anti-capitalist the Black Panthers were. I totally get hating the police and the government, but capitalism is responsible for bringing hundreds of millions, if not billions of people out of poverty around the world, and also responsible for countless advancements is technology and medicine. Other than that this film is definitely my favorite of this year so far. Highly recommend.
