User Reviews

 
Best race comedy since Blazing Saddles
11 March 2019 | by Don MuvoSee all my reviews

DPN is a well directed and acted allegory of Marcus Garvey's Back to Africa movement. Filmed in color over black & white, it is full of fantastic culture shifts and pay-back allusions, Planet Negro is a very inspired and well thought out contribution to the genre. I took a star off for some slight continuity problems.
