Cinderella, Rogers and Hammerstein (1997) Full Movie
Eve’s Bayou | written & directed by Kasi Lemmons (1997)
"Memory is a selection of images, some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. The summer I killed my father, I was 10 years old."
With those opening words, Eve’s Bayou coils back into the past, into the memories of a child who grew up in a family both gifted and flawed, and tried to find her own way to the truth, through the eyes of her older sister, and through the eyes of an aunt who can foretell everyone’s future except for her own.
Eve’s Bayou resonates in the memory. It called me back for a second and third viewing. For the viewer, it is a reminder that sometimes films can venture into the realms of poetry and dreams. —Roger Ebert

Very eye opening and makes me question a lot of things…
I was thinking about why the movie was the way it was and why black characters typically do not have good character arcs…. like sometimes I feel like these watered downed versions are made for mainstream liberals. It’s like it’s a black movie but not too black or else you will offend white people.
and this is enough review for me!
the review i was looking for
It opened here in the UK last week, but I don’t think I will spend my money on it now
“When we take the magic milk from the tree, we can see things. We see ghosts all over. When I see the ghosts it helps me do the job, because I see the ghosts. I don’t see the red meat leaking red on the ground. All I see are the ghosts that walk in the forest. There are many, many ghosts here, You wouldn’t believe. Too many ghosts. Even when I sleep, I see ghosts inside my head.”
This film is told from the perspective of one young African girl’s journey to reclaim her life in the face of war and sexual assault and it looks visually stunning while doing it.
Primarily filmed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, War Witch is a 2012 drama written & directed by Kim Nguyen.
It’s a pity that “Avatar: The last Airbender” never got a live action film.
what a shame
It’s a fucking travesty
