I give this movie 2 stars out of 5. Reasons: 1 star because Tyler's is attempting to stretch and I applaud that. 2nd star because Madea wasn't in it. Personally, this story reminded me of too many other films (including other films he's made and *cough* "The Pursuit of Happyness" *cough*) and as usual it's wrapped in a Hollywood-by-way-of-Atlanta bow. I think it's a great cast, but I think they lacked direction. I think it's an interesting story, but very predictable. I love films and don't fully regret watching this. But I wouldn't recommend it.
This was such a great documentary, I would love to own it. It captures the impact Gordon Parks had on American History through his love of the arts. It takes you deep into the wide net of his creativity, from the music he composed, his brilliant photographs, his films, poetry and books. I think Gordon Parks his the personification of the phrase "Renaissance Man"!!!! Don't believe me? Watch "Half Past Autumn" to prove my point.
