  3. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

    A great documentary illustrating the political assassinations perpetrated by the FBI and by the police to obliterate the Black Panthers. As Radley Balko explained in his book, the late 1960s is when the militarization of the US police forces began (think SWAT) and continues up to these days. In 2016, police brutality is so commonplace it does not even make the front page. America is a scary, scary place.

  4. Matthew Martens's rating of the film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

    Although it can feel rather unfinished, not to mention arbitrary at times and tendentious at others, this is a transfixing film and we're fortunate to have it.

  5. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

    Martin Luther King is the safe campaigner for racial equality. The idea of Malcolm X and Black Panther's civil disobedience makes some uncomfortable. In a world where racism remains a pernicious and ever-present entity, the challenge is to decide who is more extreme: a radicial revolutionary organisation or such endemic bigotry and discrimination.

    Free screening @ Elmwood Theatre, Berkeley :-)

  7. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

    As is pointed out at the beginning of this film,the Black Panthers were different things to different people.To the Authorities,they were a threatening paramilitary organisation. To their supporters,they were witness's to police brutality and a source of needed social services.The key to this film is J Edgar Hoover's answer to justice for the Panthers;"Justice is incidental to law and order." WRONG!JUSTICE IS PRIME.

  8. mubianer's rating of the film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

    I like these rise and fall documentaries, but feels like it would have needed more time to dig deeper.
