Basically it’s members of the Black Panthers telling the story from the formation of the party and the reactions to it, to the present day.
I now know where the Boo Radleys got the title of ‘Free Huey’ from. It came from chants and posters that demonstrators used to protest about the incarceration of Huey Newton, a founding member of the Black Panthers.
I’d obviously heard of the Black Panthers but didn’t really know too much about them. Good, informative documentary.
Based on the first Lincoln Rhyme novel by Jeffrey Deaver
Denzel is even good when he just moves his head and his finger!
Quite funny watching the featurette on the DVD with the producer, director and Denzel all talking about the young, almost unknown, actress (Jolie) that was cast and how she was brilliant, while Jolie herself seemed quite excited about being in the film. Quite the difference from the superstar she is now.
Rooker seems to play the Michael Rooker part he plays in lots of films.
What’s it all about? – Stephen King in story-about-a-writer-shock! A mystery writer gets brutally attacked on her way home from a reading group and, with the ‘advice’ of one of her characters (and her sat-nav!), she sets out to get revenge on the big driver!
Notes & Scribbles
Based on the novella which appeared in the collection ‘Full Dark, No Stars’.
Her sat-nav had conversations with her!
He really was a big lad, and deserved what he got in the end.
