    Worst movie I've ever watched. Based on speculation, fantasy and ignorance! With the same old promotion of the black - white racist issue that we are all tired of because it holds no truth! It seems that there actually are people who do not know the truth and blindly try to demonize the Heritage of a people greater than themselves. What a waste of my time and money.

    The most raciest piece of trash I have ever seen by a wide margin. Everyone connected with this movie should be beaten. Written criticism is too good for them.

    The absolute worst movie I've ever seen. I've come across more creative and interesting writing from students in middle school. I'm surprised they were able to find actors to say such silly things. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.

  1. It's a fearless and brilliant racial-historical satire, done in a meticulous re-creation of the Ken Burns mode, that chronicles the last 150 years of America as if the South had won the Civil War.

    Of course, the very existence of someone like Willmott -- a black university professor who can make an angry, ruthless satire about American racism with impunity -- suggests that we're still a long way from living in the CSA.

    More intriguing on paper than when it actually unspools onscreen. Kevin Willmott's small-scaled but ambitious picture is well-researched, sometimes amusing and not unintelligent.
