An intelligent, touching, and thought-provoking drama that goes way beyond just the dealings of post-war traumas and racism. Truly an achievement. And god it must have sucked (and maybe it still does) to live in America with all those KKK shitheads around - Jonathan Banks goes out of his way to portray the shithead side.
El principal tropiezo de "Mudbound" es que tarda demasiado en manifestar su conflicto. Se tiene incluso que esperar mucho para que los protagonistas del mismo sean los protagonistas dentro de la historia. La sola historia del soldado negro volviendo a casa ya es una trama interesante, pero Dee Rees cae en promover un rasgo redentor en medio de una coyuntura que desborda el racismo. Opta por el drama fácil.
Dee Rees is a treasure. This portrait of desolated souls and places in rural USA during and after WWII was beautiful. Jonathan Banks' KKK heinous patriarch was a scene-stealer, Mulligan expresses sadness through her eyes like no other actress and Garrett Hedlund was a doll. Oh, and preach it MJ Blige!

Here's to feminism & equal opportunity despite 'ethnic' background or gender. Here's to Mary J. Blige's Oscar. Here's me spitting in the face of the voters for not nominating Dee Rees for Best Picture and Best D I R E C T O R▽
