Free Angela & All Political Prisoners Reviews
I think the minute or so used for a pot shot at Richard Nixon near the end would have been better used revisiting the farmer who posted Ms. Davis' bail. He got a couple of minutes of interesting screen time, then disappeared from the story.
This documentary is like a thriller. Davis returns from philosophy studies in Germany, is fired from UCLA by its board there Governor Ronald Reagan is a member, dedicates herself to prisoners' rights, falls in love with one of them. Than comes the disaster. That prisoner is involved in a court drama, there a judge is murdered and jury members injured and some of the guns are owned by Davis.
The reasons for her buying guns are the threats she has received and she showed her ID when buying them. That's the main point for the defence. Davis, the university philosophy teacher is by definition not stupid. She wouldn't get the guns that way if she was part of a terrorist conspiration.
Well-made movie about what can absolutely not be called present history. Although it was only 40 years ago.
Today they all masquerade as professors at some major universities. Don't you just love knowing that these commie, murdering threesome are indoctrinating our young people today?
