Count Your Blessings
17 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A movie that commanded a ten is upon you. Acting, story, directing and the points made all find their target into the pit of your stomach and then your heart. What is it that can reach out and then grab someone to this depth and purpose? Injustice for one. No man with a conscience can stand to see a wrong go unpunished or unaddressed and remain disturbed while standing by and doing nothing. Here we see the hopelessness of playing by all the known rules only to find out that the rules don't work when you need them the most. The factor? Human Betrayal. Eternal Truth doesn't come and go but personal truths fall short and that point is delivered here up front, close and personal...right in your face. As far as portraying accurately the theme of prejudice, this movie excels. To be black was not a pleasant experience in America at times and have you noticed that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution only work if we all agree that it should. One redeeming point however comes through in this movie and that is to do what is fair, honest and right and I don't care what color you are, those quality make you shine. Failure to do this and those same very dynamics accuse you too. I enjoyed some pizza slices followed by some fruit and then some popcorn with a tasty drink. No cell phones. Pay attention and let your soul be moved and fed
