Ratings & Reviews

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

    One of the most bizzarley constructed functional narrative's I have ever seen. Surprisingly the dramatic conflict does not end with the civil war but only escalates into the reconstruction period; additionally the film is unexpectedly based on objective history. It's possible Luchino Visconti, or Micheal Cimino could have crafted nation defining cinema here yet this film lives with it's own true empathy.

  2. Star Lord's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    3,5 per una bella trama, un'ottima storia vera e grande interpretazione di McConaughey.

  3. Denis Zordan's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

  4. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    I like odd history, but The Free State of Jones offers a cinematically well-polished piece of his-fic in a boring package. The grandchild court case subplot had absolutely no true purpose in the main story. Overall, it falls flat underneath the shadow of greater war films--in part due to a lack of on-camera struggle through conflict, in part due to a lack of character breadth.

  5. Corriel's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    Nothing is exceptional in this film but everything is good. Story-wise it is a must see for history lovers.

  6. Amy's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    I'm dead, it's a Huayi Brothers production.

  7. hubertguillaud's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    Ce biopique militant et humaniste dresse une belle dénonciation de l'esclavage et de l'exploitation de l'homme par l'homme. Le tout dans une fresque assez habile, mais inégale, très classique et scolaire, sans grande incarnation, hélas, malgré quelques belles prestations.

  10. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    good feels for shitheels in mississippi (me)

  11. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    Matthew is quite good in this refreshingly introspective take on war so its a shame they insisted on flashing forward 85 years to hit us over the head with civil war cinema 101.

  14. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Free State of Jones

    Gary Ross makes his direction far more mannered and focused than its ever been before and Matthew McConaughey gives an unsurprisingly tender and effective performance amidst a brutal, blood-soaked looked at an intriguing, if divisive, historical figure many history books may have overlooked.
