The Green Pastures Reviews
This film is better than 98% of the rest for several reasons. One: the direction is outstanding, Two:the script's actually very good, and very funny when looked at as satire, Three: the acting and the cast are amazing, it contains pretty much every A-list black star of the day. You get the feeling watching the movie that the cast got the underlying satire and really played it up. They all seem like they're have great time making it. Check it out, but be prepared for jaw-dropping stereotype portrails.
It might be the most interesting take on the Bible I've ever seen.
A true product of its' time, it's a little racist, I think, but still a totally watchable film, unless you can't sit still for three minutes without a shootout or a car chase inserted to make a movie "interesting".
The All-Black Cast give this film a realness unlike The Ten Commandments.
