The Free State of Jones - Is a Thought Provoker

The Free State of Jones is a striking epic by any measure. This remarkable effort by Writer/Director Gary Ross (Hunger Games) deserves to be honoured by a larger range of audience. So, why was it not?. In this climate of the now, more than ever obvious, political Hollywood machine - this honest treatment of a shameful event in the history of the USA is very close to opening many questions about America's current political state. Here we have a thoroughly researched (check out the prolific end credits) examination of a major, but shamefully little known historical event of the Civil War.

(Any spoilers that might exist are minor and won't detract) A medical soldier (and farmer) is shocked at the way the Southern Army is treating its very own farming citizens - he defects and attempts to make it home to his family. On the way he experiences many eye opening situations. This story eventually leads up to Lincoln and the Republican Abolitionists - then goes on to look at the shameful events of the barbaric 'Reconstruction' aftermath. It also seriously examines the corrupt Democrats vote rigging shams as well as their seeming to share a shocking involvement with the hideous Ku-Klux-Klan. So, how much has truly changed in this political machine apart from a thin 'civilised veneer over the surface? It's all documented for those studying the war and seeking the truth. It's just that you may not find all that much about it in your school books. 'Jones' is filled with marvellous production values: - performances, script, photography, music, just about anything you might ask for in a great movie. Don't expect nonstop action, it's detailed, so longish but never boring - it also employs some 'modern' editing styles but it all comes together in the end. It's an intelligent study of a serious blight on history - especially the South's. No big praises from the academy, but why would you expect any - perhaps it's too honest? Let's hope the producers recoup some of their losses through Cable, DVD and TV sales, they deserve it all. Don't miss this one.

Great Civil War Story

Great story and great acting. This movie shows the civil war from an angle that I have not seen in any other movie.

When will we learn

First they called them slaves. Then when that was outlawed they called them apprentice. Same thing. Just changed the name. Then when they outlawed that they took to hanging them. By the way, they are Democrats. And today they give them free food and money. Keep them depressed. And it works. They actually are siding with their oppressors. The Democrats don't care about black people. They just want their votes. And now they will do it with Illegal Immigrants. And the press covered for them then and they still do it today. When will it change?
