Until this moment we cannot be certain that the movie is going to employ every cliche of antebellum melodrama.

Viewed with fresh eyes, it can credibly be seen as revisionist history of a particularly savage kind.

Mandingo is racist trash, obscene in its manipulation of human beings and feelings, and excruciating to sit through.

Good to see Fleischer returning to the kind of psycho-pathological thriller that he can handle so well.

One of the most neglected and underrated Hollywood films of its era.
