Audience Reviews for Drum


"I love you Claudia, but maybe niggers shouldn't love."-Drum (Ken Norton)

I'll bet, two bits, that Tarantino loves this flick.

"Blind is the color of freedom."-Blaise (Yaphet Kotto)

the thing about the slavery back drop...it connected me. seeing slave sold nd fight for the amusement of their gambling masters, was very demeaning and infuriating. now, the film isn't that great. the acting is as good as a shoe sandwich. yaphet kotto was probably the best actor as blaise. other than the subject matter, this was meh.
