Audience Reviews for Tick...Tick...Tick...


Good drama movie about racism.This film is very under rated due to it's message hitting hard with few punches pulled.Brown gives a very good performance here and so do all the other actors.I like the cinematography color here,very crisp and eye pleasing.The screenplay is a little bland but does not ruin the movie at all.Not for people who do not like seeing the truth about the ugliness of prejudice and corruption from BOTH races.....

A true classic from the sevanties...captures to glory of segregation back in the days... I saw this again on VHS recently...an old guy that had a whole lot of classic cinema stuff, let me see it...You have got to see this...so you can FEEL how stupid racism is. Get it..if you can FIND it!
