    Thanks for your honest, insightful and thought-filled radio program. I listen to you most days on a station in Pittsfield, IL. Thank you for contributing to the social sanity and spiritual integrity of our country. Bob

    This was certainly a searing, vivid portrayal of how a good man came to be surrounded by very much evil in the pre-civil war deep South as the actions he (and many others) took to survive. What was glossed over, however, was the story of how the main character’s clandestine cries for relief came to be heard and acted upon by men of good conscience who risked their own lives to extricate him from the situation and restore him to his family.

    Dreadful movie. How long will we have to be played by Hollywood, in their words, as niggers…..hung by a rope for what some of our great grandparents did…haven’t we more than atoned for that…..they just won’t leave it alone…..best picture my rear end…the acting was not that great….best supporting actress ???……Matthew and Jared were fantastic but best pic was August: Osage County and Meryl and Julia deserved the awards………guess they are not black enough for Hollywood…..four stars from me, like you……academy sucks and your reviews lead me to the best films….did you review What Maisie Knew….great film…..love your radio show…..listen every day on KRLA…..

    Well, Roger, if the worst thing grade-A knuckleheads like you have to complain about is that people made a movie about slavery, you probably don’t have any real racism in your life to worry about. Incidentally, I think your comments contain more inexplicable periods per line than allowed by law.
