Bad Day at Black Rock

Tweet Review by Dean Duncan Jul 18, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw #BadDayatBlackRock. An earnest, sincere, substantial film about how the US won the War against hatred & bigotry, …

… while contributing to wrestle, at times w’ conspicuous un-success, w’ hatred & bigotry at home.

#BadDayatBlackRock. Not a popular message! Or a pleasant one. Or, for some, a problem theretofore unrecognized, or unacknowledged …

… Do all those things lead or add up to the film’s remarkably, almost punishingly heavy hand? Given the times, & MGM, …

… & the cost of making & distributing motion pictures, did they really have a choice? Given the¬†importance of & conviction in this message …

… is there really any reason to blame or condemn anybody?

#BadDayatBlackRock. Plotty! Also, what an over-determined bunch of bad guys, & cowardly enablers. Rather forces our protagonist …

… into being over-emphatic as well.
