The images in this production simply add fuel to an already burning fire of strained racial relations. I am not speaking to the beginning of the movie nor the end, simply the pure hatred between black and white. Many people, I fear, will completely forget the movie as a whole though they may take from it the splendid performances from it's two main actors, Samuel L. Jackson and Julianne Moore. But I fear they will not remember how it ended or what, if any, lessons there were to take from it. Only those images. Those vicious images branded on many an angry brain. What was the point? Was it to remind us of the tensions between these two groups? I, for one don't need that. Do we need to be reminded of just how bad we can treat each other? Not me. Mississippi Burning had a point and a purpose. To Kill A Mocking Bird had a profound moral and left the viewer with something to think about. Freedomland seemed to me, a mean spirited movie.
