By the start of World War II, Paul Robeson had given up his lucrative mainstream work to participate in more socially progressive film and stage productions. Robeson committed his support to Paul Strand and Leo Hurwitz’s political semidocumentary Native Land. With Robeson’s narration and songs, this beautifully shot and edited film exposes violations of Americans’ civil liberties and is a call to action for exploited workers around the country. Scarcely shown since its debut, Native Land represents Robeson’s shift from narrative cinema to the leftist documentaries that would define the final chapter of his controversial film career.

(mx) wrote: True story movie about a couple who are out in the sea with sharks around them. It was filmed like a tv documentary almost , felt like it. Okey movie to watch but no normal horror movie like jaws etc.
(jp) wrote: Pretty decent horror comedy, post Scream knock off, but slightly more intelligent and clever. Good Jay Mohr performance.

(au) wrote: It's a shame Bille August never made another good film, but this epic captures the landscapes, and the father-son relationship in an extremely tender and honest way.
(us) wrote: Fantastic and satisfying neo-noir. There is a brooding atmosphere that catches something of the times in this challenging film. It builds tension very gradually in a way that makes you think it is a melodrama before diving headlong into the 1970s conspiracy thriller. A truly great script with some of the best lines I've ever heard - "Harry thinks if you call him Harry one more time he's going to make you eat that cat," dependably great performance from Hackman with decent support. More than a neo-noir like Chinatown, this brings noir themes up to date by exposing the cracks in 1970s American society - problems with free love, regional wage differences, the ongoing exploitation from Hollywood, greed and depression. The plot becomes so convoluted, even involving a Maltese Falcon like dingus, you'll never want it to end.
