Blood Done Sign My Name (2010)
Critic Consensus: Even among civil rights movies, Blood Done Sign My Name is remarkably earnest, but its big heart can't cover for the bland acting and TV-style melodrama that blunts the movie's impact.

Critic Reviews for Blood Done Sign My Name
You can't deny the inspirational qualities of the story or Parker's screen presence, any more than you could accuse the film of subtlety or of masking its conspicuous pro-Christian agenda.
Though it can't quite transcend its filmmaker's earnest intentions, this solemn history lesson offers several powerful moments.
Along the way there are many fine, precisely observed moments showing what race relations were like in this little tobacco town at the turn of the decade.
What the film lacks in psychological nuance it makes up for in unassuming, intimate social observation.
Audience Reviews for Blood Done Sign My Name
Racism--one of the most dirty words. It has been raising its ugly head since the birth of America. This true story will make you cringe with its relentless brutality, and appalling injustice! This town reacted to the crime this movie is based on by closing in the ranks of the whites, and eventually running their new pastor out of town. White supremacy died a SLOW death in the deep South.
I thought this was a very good movie, and very informative. I enjoyed it very much, as I learned about another racial injustice that I had not heard of.
