Ratings & Reviews

  1. THE APOLL0's rating of the film The Emperor Jones

    Bigoted stereotype's permeate from the beginning of the film onward in a movie supposedly about early Hollywood black empowerment; Robeson however when given a chance by the camera animates Brutus's struggle with skill that is only just being kept back from scene to scene.

  2. Diderot's rating of the film The Emperor Jones

    Paul Robeson is one of the greatest things that ever happened.

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film The Emperor Jones

    "There's little stealin', like you does, and there's big stealin', like I does. The little stealin will get you in jail sooner or later, but the big stealin' makes you emperor."
