Movie Reviews

Don't let the title detour you... Great film for aspiring fi
Timothy T. | USA | 04/26/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The title may give some people the wrong impression of this movie... It is a documentary, once you watch it, you will understand the title. it is about Melvin Van Peebles I just happen to own one of his movies "Watermelon Man" and loved to hear the stories about how that movie was made and about his times in the US and how he was in France became a French writer just to make movies. There is so much more to this movie I can't give it all away. It was inspirational to me. He is a man that doesn't let little things hold him back; I respect that."
Excellent work if you want to know most of the story about M

"I was a bit skeptical when I saw the title, but it's classic Melvin and leave it to the French to tell his story best. It's life come full circle. They helped America see him for the "first" time years ago. I most love Melvin's words (might not get it verbatim) in here: make sure when you win, The Man wins. The most conciliatory I've ever seen in him. Don't get it twisted tho'. The man is still baaaaaad. We love you, Mel!!!"
