Not Available on DVD: ‘The Klansman’

30 September 2009 5:55 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Only in the 1970’s could Hollywood have turned its attention to the subject of racism in the deep south and come up with something so jaw-dropping in it’s political incorrectness as The Klansman. On the surface the 1974 film is a serious depiction of the bigotry and the racial confrontations that tear apart an Alabama town in the 1960’s, but watching it today The Klansman comes off at times serious, laughable, mean-spirited, sleazy, and racist. I’m sure the movie wasn’t meant to be racist, but it is filled with characters mouthing so many racist beliefs and committing so many racist crimes that the movie seems to gloat gleefully in its outrageous depiction of bigotry and delivers one ham-fisted, hypocritical message. The Klansman really has to be seen to be believed but you can’t, because it’s Not available on DVD!
