Not so Wise
Sunday afternoon relaxing and Wise Blood aired. What a foul mouth bunch. The N word was used quiet a bit, only they did say the word outright in a very offensive and ugly way, I might add. In the wake of Fruitville Station and the Zimmerman muder trial, I would think we need to move past this type of ugliness in our culture, which serves no purpose. The language and sterotypes in this film shares no value. There are no teachable moments nor does it educate on a past long gone, but rather takes us backwards as a nation to a very ugly period. I had the remote in my hand when the next scene showed monkeys, well, I knew it was coming and they did not disappoint. Of course, the southern boys obliged and made an ignorant comment concerning N*****s and Monkeys. Well that did it for me! I signed on to TCM to let my voice be heard. Please do a little more screening of your movies you have a diverse group of people in your mix and that so called movie went too far even in the context of history. It was just too much to bear for a peaceful relaxing Sunday afternoon.

One of Director Huston's best & undervalued works. Dourif gives a powerful performance as a war vet attempting to open his own church, the story has numerous eccentric characters, but it's hard to familiarize with them. Adapted from O'Connor's novel, the poetic story is incisive about the nature of spirituality & evangelicalism. Occasionally dull, but still worth seeing. I give it a 4/5.
Sick and Sad somewhat booring
This move involves strange characters using the" N" word alot. Can be summed up in a sentence or two. Some crazy peop;e dont believe in GOD then somthing kinda little and insignificant happens and the main character tries to epent by self mutalation I would have been upset if I paid to go to the show to see this.
Set your VCR's (or Tivo or whatever)
A very weird and funny movie that turns serious. And the seriousness is all the more powerful for having entered sideways, unexpectedly seeping through the comic tone. (What a welcome change from all those self-important, grandiose "message" movies that deliver the message so obviously.) This is a rare treat for Flannery O'Connor fans, John Huston fans, and, I should think, film buffs in general.
