Add to this Jim Crow-era film’s inventive time-flipping structure, interracial familial underpinnings, a pair of identical twins (played by Paul Robeson), and you’ve got a hefty social study told from a visionary African-American filmmaker.
Paul Robeson gives a larger than life performance.
The hard-luck story speaks to societal problems that still face America in the 21st century.
