Roger Ebert points out that this film, which honestly (and sometimes graphically) explores the ambivalence surrounding race relations, was probably the best movie of 1989. I would have a hard time disagreeing. It is particularly ironic then, that the Academy gave the Best Picture award to Driving Miss Daisy which looks glossily back on the golden days of negro servitude. If you have a laserdisc player, check out the Criterion Collection’s edition of this movie.
