Quotes

Emile de Antonio: Well, TV Guide is an absolute nothing magazine. TV Guide is a special kind of magazine that panders to the lowest possible taste in American life. This is one of the reasons it has such a wide circulation. I found it very curious that TV Guide should suddenly attack Swedish and Dutch television - and meaningful. Deeply meaningful, but not in the sense that anybody would believe it. In that your average reader of TV Guide doesn't care about that kind of thing. But only when you consider who the ...

A documentary that details a near-revolution in the United States.
5 October 2011 | by treywillwestSee all my reviews

A bunch of Swedish lefties became idealistically preoccupied with American Black nationalism in the late '60s, and shot a ton of footage intended for Swedish television. Much of it wasn't used, however, and the filmmakers have only recently finished editing it into a feature. Much of this is powerful. Stokley Carmicheal's presence impressed me most of all. I didn't feel as if anything in the film felt unnecessary, except perhaps a petty feud with TV Guide for criticizing Sweedish television, which I doubt was at the center of consciousness of many African-American activists of the time. The trajectory of the film is depressing. We witness a leftist renaissance in the USA crumble as drugs (which the film forcefully suggests were introduced by the FBI) change the escape route of an oppressed community from activism to addiction.
