  1. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    Interesante filme que combina el melodrama con una temática social. Es cierto, el racismo aquí acecha, muy a pesar, gran parte de este llega del propio protagonista. Roemer promueve una historia sobre paranoia, la desconfianza hacia ese "otro" blanco. El racismo es en mayor proporción del negro hacia el blanco. Gran escena el de los amantes interrumpidos por unos fisgones. Hay una atmósfera de mucho suspenso.

  2. mubianer's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    It made me cry a little. That doesn't happen often with movies.

  3. Anita G's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    I loved this film (and its soundtrack).

  4. El Biffo's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    A beautiful and touching film by the vastly under-appreciated Michael Roemer (The Plot Against Harry). You may know Ivan Dixon from Hogan's Heroes, and here he actually gets to act in a serious role. Abbey Lincoln is fabulous. Also featuring Yaphet Kotto, Esther Rolle, and Martin Priest. Recommended.

  5. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    A glimpse inside black families and communities in Alabama in the early 60s via a narrative feature which has a bit of the look and feel of documentary. Effective at both telling a story and illuminating aspects of the black experience.

  6. Malik's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    Nothing But A Man should be mandatory viewing for all young black males.

  9. Dzimas's rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    Abbey Lincoln rarely ventured into film, but she was truly a pleasure to watch. One of the more honest films made of the Civil Rights era.

  10. H. K. ‡'s rating of the film Nothing But a Man

    Vivid slice of black life in rural Alabama in the early 60s with Ivan Dixon as a towering symbol of humanity- flaws included. References and reflects the civil rights movement through one man's discontent, while keeping it off screen. A moving, loving ode to the strength and will of black Americans.
