Praise white jesus, we niggras aint worthy


In 1863, Mississippi farmer Newt Knight serves as a medic for the Confederate Army. Opposed to slavery, Knight would rather help the wounded than fight the Union. After his nephew dies in battle, Newt returns home to Jones County to safeguard his family but is soon branded an outlaw deserter. Forced to flee, he finds refuge with a group of runaway slaves hiding out in the swamps. Forging an alliance with the slaves and other farmers, Knight leads a rebellion that would forever change history.

    Terrible reviews. Peep the 1 star ether Peter Travers dished out to this garbage juice:

    "If you think a thick, juicy slab of Civil War history can't be boiled down to 145 minutes of speechifying, stultifying cinema, then grab a seat at Free State of Jones. Like the worst civics lesson, this movie bores away at you till your reactions are dulled.

    It's a tall order and a potentially exciting one that writer-director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville, the first Hunger Games) dripples away with historical footnotes that break the cardinal rule of drama: show, don't tell. Even when Newt takes house slave Rachel (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) as his common-law wife and frees another slave, Moses (Mahershala Ali), from his shackles to develop his powers as a leader, Newt remains outsider his own story, another in a long line of Hollywood's white saviors. What is this dude really thinking? What are the flaws in his character? Where is his secret heart?

    Not in this movie."

    Terrible. Show Don't Tell is the cardinal rule of good writing. C'mon bruh. That's basic.

    "white savior" indeed, IRL historians debate whether Newton Knight was more of a freedom fighter or just a opportunistic criminal that married a black girl........a film that took that more complex view of dude would be wayyyyyyyy more interesting but instead they turned him into Robin Hood giving speeches about freedom.........boring.

    they really wasted McConaughey here.......he should've been doing his "charismatic redneck scumbag" routine like Rust Cohle or Killer Joe........smh

    I don't have an issue with movies like this. I do have an issue that more movies aren't made about the powerful and effective Blacks of the era...

    I understand ppl getting tired of slave films. But at the same time it's a younger generation coming up that wasn't informed or exposed to these films and stories. Especially in a time where schools and textbook's are literally trying to change history.

    I saw some 🤬 on John Oliver's show where in Texas I believe they had history book's that didn't use the word slavery. It had some 🤬 term they made up. But I agree there needs to be a balance. It's crazy Harriet or Sojourner haven't had a movie yet.

    Everybody hyped about the Nat Turner movie, hoping it turns out well and his received well by the black community.
