I have been a life long movie buff, from action films, comedies, horror, and in the last decade or so, documentaries. I watch everything from big budget blockbusters, to independent films, recently with an eye for pattern recognition, hidden symbalogy, or suggestive programming. I finished watching Lenon Honors recent documentary, Beyond Gangster Blackface, and this film did something that other films rarely do. It made me reflect on how I have behaved in the past and in the present, in my role as a father, a husband, or simply in my relationships with women in general. This film points out how we behave and some of the powerful influences we subject ourselves to that unconsciously mold and shape our behaviors, ways of thinking, or basically who we are. For anyone who has noticed the decline in the current human condition and asked what is going on, this film is an excellent place to look for some of the answers. This is one film unquestionably worth sharing.
