Losing to Jesse Owens in the qualifying rounds of the Olympics would not have prevented Roman Armitage from making the finals. Up to three runners from the same country can make the finals if good enough. See more »
You're gonna love this. My Dad's claim to fame. He was beat by Jesse Owens in the qualifying round for the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Those were the ones where...
Where Owens won in front of Hitler.
Yeah, what a moment. What a moment. I mean, Hitler was up there with all those perfect Aryan race bullshit. This black dude comes along and proves him wrong in front of the entire world. Amazing!
Tough break for your Dad, though.

Ok here goes. Having read the reviews and seeing how polarized they were,, I had to check the movie out myself.
To all who regard the movie as racist - I don't think so. Any modern day theme be it racism, sexism, disability issues anything can be used in this movie to highhight the issues being faced by individuals. It is for most part a unique genre in its own right.
Take dusk till dawn mix it with some eugenics and a pinch of humour and bingo .
Yes it does make you feel uncomfortable but not in a serious way. It's funny in places and very clever in bits. Some beautiful shots and filming and menacing score keep it simmering brilliantly. Watch it make your own mind up. Personally one of the most enjoyable movies from last year. Bravo.
