||Within Our Gates Review|
Within Our Gates DVD for sale The story line was pretty solid, and bearing in mind how difficult is was for minorities to break into film making ranks then, the level of technology available is quite understandable. Something that I liked about the film is that the director/writers did not try to sugarcoat how each respective community (black and white) has evil citizens within its ranks. On the other hand, good, upstanding citizens who were black and white were also shown. I mainly like how the ending was handled, showing the patriotism displayed with the references to black soldiers who had fought in past wars, counseling the aggrieved woman at the end to look toward an America which is held together by patriotic ties, not separated by regional conflicts.
