Ratings & Reviews

  1. Kamran's rating of the film Black Panthers

    As resourceful as ever, Varda centers only the facts through her manner of careful yet reticent observation. 85/100 - Excellent (4.5)

  2. Graceful Photon's rating of the film Black Panthers

    A portrait of the Black Panthers Party in 1968 Oakland, along with explanations of what the party's programme was. The film, and the issues it deals with, still resonate strongly.

  3. sansitny's rating of the film Black Panthers

    A fantastic short documentary by Agnes Varda on the Black Panther movement and the trial of Huey Newton.

  4. Bill's rating of the film Black Panthers

    A fascinating snapshot of a moment in Panther and African-American history. It can't really be called a documentary though, and is more of a pro-Panther primer or propaganda film. The emphasis on style, imagery, and rhetoric is powerful, but the price is a lack of depth. Ultimately, this short says more about the era, and how Europeans viewed America (i.e. romantically). than about the Black Panthers themselves.

  5. bryanvmh's rating of the film Black Panthers

  6. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Varda doesn't comment on the Black Panthers movement, merely observing.

  7. ronny's rating of the film Black Panthers

    fantastic piece on a revolutionary flame that burned brightly in the Bay Area for a time.

  8. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Black Panthers

  9. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Du document ! Des idéaux, des femmes et des hommes, des rassemblements, des chansons... Une époque ! I fight for black pandas, the new generation of free women !

  10. Caillouquiroule's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Toujours passionnante, Varda nous plonge dans le camp qu'elle a choisi. Un film très engagé, donc, à recontextualiser, puis à ramener vers notre époque à nouveau tant les échos résonnent encore tristement.

  11. Agnieska F's rating of the film Black Panthers

    On a beau savoir, on oublie. Documentaire nécessaire et parfait!

  12. Vincent Balcer's rating of the film Black Panthers

  13. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Black Panthers

    BLACK PANTHER sounds fucking better than "NUIT DEBOUT", no ? +++++++++++++ BLACK PANTHER, ça a une autre gueule que NUIT DEBOUT, non ?

  14. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Black Panthers

    A good visual document about the Black Panthers in the 60s

  15. Romain Tardy's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Un documentaire humble, humain et intelligent, à l'image de Varda, et de ces Black Panthers.

  16. elif jazel's rating of the film Black Panthers

    fascinating documentary! 'when they sing they sing free huey. when they dance they clench their fists.'

  17. Denis Sedgwick's rating of the film Black Panthers

    C'est fascinant cette coupe de cheveux, j'adore.

  18. smndvdcl's rating of the film Black Panthers

    A racial equality movement far more nuanced than Fox News would have you believe. Varda, the documentarian extraordinaire, has an empirical objectivity, giving an account of the movement, detached from the subject in order to allow self-presentation. Whilst Morris and Moore find subjectivity inescapable, like Herzog, Varda's clinical approach is far more appropriate, allowing the account to gain historicity.

  19. Cou Yar's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Dans ce bref documentaire, Varda suit le combat des Black Panthers d'Oakland pour la libération de l'un des leurs. Le propos de la réalisatrice, en faveur du mouvement, se veut pédagogique et engagé : les BP sont filmés dans toute leur générosité aussi bien que dans leur radicalisme désespéré.

  20. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Black Panthers

  21. Gretastick's rating of the film Black Panthers

    revolution has come, time to take up the gun

  22. Ludovic72's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Dans ce documentaire, Agnès Varda prenait clairement parti pour les Black Panthers et contre les "cochons" (policiers) qui avaient arrêté leur leader. Vu le degré de racisme qui régnait à l'époque, il serait difficile de lui en vouloir... De plus, le film est bien agencé et il donne des informations permettant de saisir la complexité de la situation.

  23. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Black Panthers

    Great to have these images, organized with Varda's eye for compassionate honesty.
