Because of the graphic nature of this film I had to remove it from public view. It is available for private viewing upon request.
Great scene from the critically acclaimed movie "The Battle of Algiers." In their struggle for independence from the French colonizers three female Algerian freedom fighters plant bombs in various public places filled with French patrons.
This week the Loose Cannons watch Goodbye Uncle Tom (aka Addio zio Tom), the ultra offensive 1971 film that critic Pauline Kael called “the most specific and rabid incitement to race war.” So what’s it about? Two documentarians go back in time to the pre-Civil War American South in order to film the slave trade. Is Goodbye Uncle Tom worthy of the Cannon canon? We don’t even know where to start!
