The Limits of Control. No plot, little dialogue, No acting and an all around incredibly dull movie. A 'Must See' for boring movie lovers.
I just got this from a elder Sistah. This is a documentary about population control / genocide of blacks by using planned parenthood / abortions. According to the documentary abortions were/are overwhelmingly pushed towards blacks to control population. A very interesting documentary and something worth adding to anybody's library conscious movies.
"To uplift the Black woman is to uplift the world"- Akil
"A revolutionary woman can't have no reactionary man. If he's not about liberation, if he's not about struggle, if he ain't about building a strong Black family, if he ain't about building a strong Black nation, then he ain't about nothing." - Assata Shakur

Genre: Epic Drama
Faced with a drought that endangers the continuity of their people, Masai elders are convinced that they have been cursed by the Red God -- the God of Vengeance. Following the death of the war chief, a group of adolescents must now cross over to adulthood, forced to quickly form a new generation of inexperienced but brave warriors. The young men must bring back the mane of a legendary lion, which appears at every critical period of Masai history to appease the wrath of the Red God and bring back the rains. The survival of their culture depends on this quest.
"A story of initiation, friendship, teamwork and sacrifice set on the vast ochre savannah of Kenya, Masai: The Rain Warriors builds slowly to a powerful and touching finale." -Lisa Nesselson, Variety
"With a documentary-like authenticity and major movie production values, this gorgeous drama takes us deep into the life of the Masai in East Africa. The story may be fiction, but the actors and the culture are completely real.” -Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
^ And with that being said, here's more!!!

SCI-FI & HORROR JOINTS
What makes a movie revolutionary is what its story inspires in you. I remember watching Spike Lee's X and being inspired to learn, to come from nothing and become something like Malcolm. However, the fact that these headliners are whats preoccupying our peoples attention is our fault. The role of a Djeli is to teach, he/she teaches with song, with prose, and poetry. There's simply, not enough of these stories being told and depicted on film. It's kinda hard to be inspired by movies where you know the brother gets killed and the movement stalled. So, just relying on historical remakes and documentaries are not enough. Hell, lets do a cinematic dramatization of Assata's escape from Amerikkka (I vote Erykah Baddu to play her lol).

I just gotta, I JUST GOTTA, add this joint to the list too (put it in the "Sci-Fi/Horror" category).
I just watched it last night and, again, early this morning. It lives up to all the hype. Not by the horror standpoint (even though they did a pretty-good job by that aspect as well... plus it has a touch of comedy too) but, in my opinion, how deep this movie is on so many levels. I'm tellin' you, the depth of the underlining story and the subliminal in the dialogue, storyline and some of the visuals is off the f***in' chart!!!
Watch it with your third-eye wide open.
Not a lot Blacks involved, but "The Skulls I, II, and III" were decenct. They're about the influence and power of Yale's "Skull & Bones" fraternity.
I know no national boundary where the Negro is concerned. The whole world is my province until Africa is free.
Our success educationally, industrially and politically is based upon the protection of a nation founded by ourselves. And the nation can be nowhere else but in Africa.
We were the first Fascists, when we had 100,000 disciplined men, and were training children, Mussolini was still an unknown. Mussolini copied our Fascism.
