This is the story of the revolutionary group, The Black Panthers.
Formed in the late 60's, they were an anti-capitalist, left wing
militant group formed by disenfranchised black citizens originally in
Oakland, California. Their formation was a result of the continued
harassment and police brutality their people suffered in American
cities at that time. It was a separate incarnation from the Civil
Rights movement which had been specifically about redressing the actual
lack of equal rights for black people in the American southern states.
The Black Panthers were formed to stand up for blacks in the more
'equal' urban areas who were still put upon by the white authorities
and who still suffered much racism. They famously had an image of
openly bearing arms and their overall approach was of a more
confrontational style than that preached by Martin Luther King. Just as
important, their look became very chic, dressed all in black, wearing
berets, leather jackets and shades, they also sported afro haircuts in
an unashamed way for the first time in contemporary America. The idea
was to visually show that black was beautiful in its natural form. The
look certainly resonated with images of the group making the front
covers of various magazines; it remains iconic to this day.
The film is made up by a combination of extensive archive footage from
the time and current interviews with past members of the group. It
tries to understand some of the motivations and ambitions of the group,
while looking at some of their opponents such as the head of the FBI,
J. Edgar Hoover who seemed quite obsessed with eradicating the group.
In one telling clip he even states that he doesn't consider the concept
of justice as being all that important and that law and order was what
he was all about. So it's perhaps not so surprising that this
philosophy led to an infamous incident where a prominent member of the
Black Panthers was murdered by the Chicago police, an event that is
thought to be related to the FBI chief in some way. For some reason
though, despite the very interesting subject matter and the dramatic
backdrop that the late 60's / early 70's America provides, I felt
something lacked from this telling of the story. It never seemed to be
as dynamic as it should be and while I learned a few things, it never
felt as engaging as it should be and so I left a bit disappointed on
the whole. This is certainly an interesting subject though and it does
cover quite a lot of ground but I felt it could have been more
