Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer (2021)

Like many Americans — including Tom Hanks, who wrote a moving op-ed in the New York Times — I was shocked to learn that, one hundred years ago on May 31 and June 1, 1921, a white mob descended upon the wealthiest Black community in the United States ("Black Wall Street") and launched a racially-motivated massacre. The death toll is still unknown, but estimates ranged from 26 to 300 Black people murdered. I decided to learn more, and I chose filmmaker Dawn Porter — who made two of last year's most affecting documentaries, John Lewis: Good Trouble and The Way I See It — as my source. Her National Geographic film Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer, like several others on the subject, is timed for the 100th anniversary of the massacre. It centers on Washington Post reporter DeNeen Brown and the search for mass grave(s) that might shine more light, as well as some closure, on the massacre. The film spends a good deal of time on the years leading up to 1921, and several more massacres, showing that this was no isolated incident. It also discusses just how such an important event in American history could be so thoroughly and shamefully hidden away. Rise Again is a very tough, soul-crushing watch, but it also proves just how utterly essential a knowledge of history actually is. read more...

The Dissident (2021)

Long, and not exactly uplifting, the documentary The Dissident is nevertheless absolutely essential, constantly re-asserting its own investigative journalism even in the face of world powers that would crush it. read more...

I Am Not Your Negro (2016)

In a year of remarkable documentaries on racism — coming, apparently, just in time — Raoul Peck's I Am Not Your Negro isn't as sensational or essential as O.J.: Made in America, nor as far-reaching and emotional as Ava Duvernay's 13th, but it's certainly the most scholarly. (The trio should be taken together as an important snapshot of racism as an inextricable part of American history.) Director Peck (Lumumba) bases his film on an unfinished manuscript by author James Baldwin (1924-1987), detailing Baldwin's reminiscences of and friendships with civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Samuel L. Jackson narrates from the manuscript, using a surprisingly effective, moderated voice, and matching Baldwin's own beautiful, intelligent manner of speaking. This flows over a stream of powerful images, archival footage of Baldwin speaking about race with clarity that was unheard of at the time, difficult for whites to understand (perhaps less so now, but still difficult). A short capsule review cannot do this documentary's depth of intelligence justice, but suffice to say that it uses history and literature to peel back old wounds and reveal fresh ones. read more...

Good Kill (2015)

Though Andrew Niccol's Good Kill -- which claims to be based on actual events -- is heavy and preachy, with characters making too many speeches, Ethan Hawke's powerful performance humanizes this incendiary material and gives it an emotional heft. Writer/director Andrew Niccol specializes in movies about humans trapped in mechanized worlds, though he usually achieves a bit more success with a bit of irony infused in the storytelling. read more...
