CLAUDINE — THE CRITERION COLLECTION
You don't know diversity.
The once exiled John Berry (11th member of the "Hollywood 10" blacklisted directors under the House on Un-American Activities Committee - HUAC) serves up a cold plate of leftist perspective in the form of one of the best fucking American movies ever made.
Hardly any white folk show up on screen.
Thank the fucking God that doesn't exist.
Get down and funky with Diahann Carroll and James Earl Jones in East Harlem circa 1973.
Diahann Carroll got a much deserved Oscar nom for her inspired performance here.
Diahann Carroll blows the doors off the movie.
Before James Earl Jones became a big time money maker with "Star Wars" three years later, he crafted a character you will never forget for this real-style romantic drama.
Written by husband and wife team Tina and Lester Pine, "Claudine" is a perfect script. Fantastic.
More social layers than three Ken Loach movies put together.
Richness of humanity has nothing to do with money or politics.
"No War — No Racism."
Desert island movie, straight up.
Rated PG. 92 mins.
Groupthink doesn't live here, critical thought does.
