Critic Reviews for CSA: The Confederate States of America
By slyly nudging both history and the language of television, this mock documentary about an America won by the Confederacy ... manages to be both shocking and strangely banal in equal measure.
The satire comes to feel strained and the whole premise gets awfully precious, reducing social subtleties to cinematic simplicities.
A sometimes incisive, sometimes amateurish look at race in America, the things we do and tolerate as a nation that are really no different from an America ruled by unrepentant slave-holders.
[Writer/Director] Willmott could have easily stumbled over his own cleverness but, as with the rest of the movie, his fantasia is intellectually rigorous and makes for stimulating debate.
Audience Reviews for CSA: The Confederate States of America
CSA is a thought provoking and humorous look at the sheer absurdities of white-centric world views. Like Wolfe's "Colored Museum" turned on its head, this uses parody, irony and extreme situations to jolt the viewer into an uncomfortable confrontation with certain types of thought.
In this "what If" we get to see what would happen if the US was Alabama.
It was SOOOOO boring!!! But, it was an interesting concept and the way the film was put together was really unique in my opinion. I don't know if I believe the story though. That's not what I think would have happened.
