Your daddy wanted you to be everything he wasn't, and at the same time, he wanted you to be everything he was.
The movie version of August Wilson's play, is shot almost entirely in the backyard of a house in the 1950s.
The male lead role was played by Denzel Washington who plays a selfish man who cannot follow the changing world and consequently underestimates and oppresses others around him. Considering that he is wronged and that life owes him, he demonstrates power at the first opportunity, unable to express himself in a different way.
Excellent Viola Davis who fully justifies the winning oscar for best performance by an actress in a supporting role and sums up an entire school of fathers with the phrase : "Your father wanted you to become everything he was not and at the same time he wanted you to become everything he was".
In the Heat of the Night (1967)
Right man in wrong place
The film bombards you with stereotypes and racism, exposing him and deconstructing him as the film goes on at a time when "affirmative action" was in its infancy. In addition, the film plays a lot with the dilemmas of right-wrong, must-want in established perceptions and prejudices of the time. The dialogues seemed quite natural to me, the characters of the film are cleverly structured and the performances of the actors are excellent with a special reference to Sidney Poitier.
The brighter the light, the darker the shadow
Very nice movie, which manages to refer to a very special and controversial issue without taking a clear position. The similarities between the two, completely different countries and how they try to prove their superiority by using the protagonist in their interest are terrible. Also terrible is the despair of the protagonist in his attempt to prove that he is not an elephant and to find his right constantly in the film.
