Black August

Black August

The last 14 months of George Jackson's life was an existence under subjective and objective conditions in California's industrial prison complex. George Jackson would spend 11 years in jail (7 of which were in solitary confinement) for a $70 gas station robbery crime in 1960. He was 18 years of age when the sentence of one year-to-life was handed down to him.

Inmate activist George Lester Jackson's short life became a flashpoint for revolution, igniting the bloodiest riot in San Quentin's history. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki


Black August torrent reviews

Peter M (mx) wrote: A great in-depth look at the life of Olympic runner Usain Bolt and the obstacles he must face in order to stay the "fastest man in the world"

Grant S (au) wrote: Not bad, but not great either. Tries to capture the Humphrey Boogart/Philip Marlowe feel, with a Sin City style, but ends up a poor imitation of both. Plot could be out of the Raymond Chandler/Frank Miller playbook, but is less cohesive and plausible. After a while it just falls back on action.Thomas Jane is reasonable in the lead role. Supporting cast - Ving Rhames, Elsa Pataky - are solid.

Wrik S (mx) wrote: a good documentary based on the swingers nightclub... highlights the typical american sentiment of self-centered pleasure, and the downfalls related to it... by the end of it all, u begin to realise how selfish people became with larry, who did so much for their pleasure and yes, kudos to this man... he really had a great heart!!

Gary B (gb) wrote: Great performance by Streep but not the story I would have told!

Bobby E (ru) wrote: Thanks babe. Great documentary

Mark B (gb) wrote: A very funny movie, but I thought the ending was a bit weak.

Mandy P (ca) wrote: Nothing in the trailers made me interested in this film. If you are going to spend millions commenting about modern society then be prepared to deliver something more substantial than a soundbyte stretched into 2 hours.

Scott R (mx) wrote: It had some good ideas, but there were some painfully poorly directed moments.

Sherry (fr) wrote: Love story of a Vampire.

El N (au) wrote: Worth a watch just for the cast list. Although emotive, and detailing an event that should be remembered and studied, this sprawling film seems sometimes trite, lacking the punch and finesse of such examples as Spielbergs Schindlers List. It may be going throught the motions, but there are far worse films out there. Watch out for performances from Max von Sydow, Malcolm McDowell and Malcolm McDowell.

Justin F (ru) wrote: For the hype that built me up for this, it wasn't bad at all. I really don't understand why it has a court order against its public showings...

Mike S (fr) wrote: A really refreshing tale of lower tier Canadian hockey leagues. A bit stereotypical in the language aspect, but the plot of the story is extremely satisfying.

Karsh D (es) wrote: Gentle comedy drama where an old pupil is given his chance of putting on a play thanks to his old english teacher. Nathan Lane gives the film a good injection of pace at the right times
