Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 18, 2015

What is this? A student production?! A one minute credit sequence on a five minute film seems a bit much.

Back to something relevant. First we have a very striking montage of civil rights images. The pictures are arresting, and the juxtaposition thereof grabs you. The selection and pacing are very adept, but though it’s artful, that’s not the point. “The message of this song’s not subtle/no discussion, no rebuttal.” Toward the end Alvarez takes the gloves off; the final images are brutal, awful. The conclusion is terrifying, the writing on the wall. The bullets!—remembering Dr. King’s celebrated statement, which is called “Why We Can’t Wait.” What was the title of this film? The Cuban source might make us fear revolution, but this is righteous anger.
