    Paul Robeson: Tribute to an Artist

    ★★★★★

    What does one do if they sing as well as Frank Sinatra, act as well as Anthony Hopkins, yet receive three-fifths of their respect? Paul Robeson's life answers that question as best as it can while still remaining true to human rights.

    Expertly narrated by the masterful Sidney Poitier, this film's brilliant juxtaposition of historical photographs and Old Hollywood footage is so seamless, it places the perfect benchmark for documentary filmmaking as a whole.

    Damien Chazelle: Does anyone remember those jovial Old Hollywood musicals?

    Disney: Yes, we make them every three years.

    Funny how this film doesn't seem disturbing until you describe it to those who haven't seen it...

    #54 on my list of favorite films

    Scarier than The Shining, more political than A Clockwork Orange and Dr. Strangelove, more mysterious than 2001: A Space Odyssey and more misunderstood than Full Metal Jacket. This is Kubrick's most underrated and overlooked film and, despite the casting, probably his best.
