Very hard for black people to watch.
29 September 2013 | by (Earth, Solar system) – See all my reviews

I suppose there are whites for whom this would be hard to watch as well, but I guess black people will identify more with the victim, to a deep emotional level.

This film won't come entirely as a shock to those who know the many injustices of American justice system. The Trayvon Martin case shows that there's still a humongous amount of class justice, or rather racist justice over there, one set of laws for whites, and one set for blacks.

This is exactly at the heart of the events in this film. A black man is brought in for questioning, because his wife was found dead in their house, having bled out. Now, as the situation becomes clear during the film, you really get the feeling, to a point of certainty, that if this had happened to a white family, the husband would NOT have been hauled in for questioning, would NOT have been treated like a criminal, would NOT have been separated from his kids all night. The problem of not being able to call a lawyer wouldn't even have arisen.

The policemen are feeling that the election of Thatcher allows them all sorts of rights they previous were denied by the Labour government: Now they feel empowered to harass every non-white person, sent them back if "they step out of line", even once.

So that's the situation: Two policemen, who feel overjoyed that the Thatcher win has now allowed them to bring their inner racist out in the open. And they judge the situation completely through a racist lens: black woman, dead, bled out, black husband, and of course blacks are animals, who are such savages that they wouldn't even use the NHS to get an abortion, so they used a screwdriver instead.

That, and not whatever a doctor told the policemen what happened, has led to the horrendous police brutality shown here.

The police jumped to the most racist conclusion their fascist minds could think up about the situation, without ever even trying to be objective about it. No! Because "blacks are animals, everyone knows that!" It took me about 2 minutes to realize that I didn't really wanna watch this movie, and I tried not to, but I got sucked in by the situation and the quality of acting.

Great movie.
