  1. El Biffo's rating of the film The Northerners

    I am really not sure what the intentions of this "black comedy" are. The only Black person in the film is put on exhibit in a cage (is that supposed to be a joke?) and referred to as "kaffir". There's the kid who goes around in blackface, and a serial rapist (because his wife rejects him). Is this supposed to be "addressing historical racism"? or what. If anyone wants to explain it to me, the comments box is open...

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Northerners

    The movie itself is fine. The problem is that some of the problems it points out are things we still find hard to watch. Like blackface.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film The Northerners

    Film extrêmement personnel, entre onirisme et naïveté, par un cinéaste à suivre... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Northerners

  5. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Northerners

    Un filme que roza con la comedia negra. En un suburbio holandés un vecindario excéntrico va develando personajes que rozan con la locura por culpa de sus obsesiones o represiones, desde sexuales a mesiánicas. A llamar la atención son los prototipos de estos protagonistas. Es variopinto, rozando con lo ridículo y lo caricaturesco. Lo otro es su diseño artístico. Una puesta en escena extravagante.
