Movie Review: Harry Brown

One sentence review: a searing indictment of Black ghetto thug culture in which not a single Black is seared or indicted!

To expand: This may in some ways be one of the best films I’ve ever seen. It was the work of a mature director who was confident enough in his material to take his time and allow both tension and character to grow naturally. The choice of Emily Mortimer to play the lead detective was an inspired piece of casting as shoe was by turns compassionate, smart and utterly incapable of standing up to the savagery that surrounded her.

Its hard to imagine a more damning indictment of the utterly feckless British Police who have devolved into a fever swamp of anarcho-tyranny which Sam Francis defined as

What we have in this country today, then, is both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny—the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes; the criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent through exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation, the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through “sensitivity training” and multiculturalist curricula, “hate crime” laws, gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally, and a vast labyrinth of other measures. In a word, anarcho-tyranny.

And this movie pulls no punches when it comes to lambasting the utterly feminized police state the average Brit suffers under while the authorities try to understand the savages.

And while this movie is unrelenting in its portrayal of the realities of living in the ghetto the one thing they shied away from was showing us the racial realities of crime, even in Britain. In almost every scene with criminals we see Blacks, sometimes we even hear them yet they are never the problem. Somehow it is only Whites committing crimes here, this is my only real ding on the movie. This felt like an almost complete cop out, as if they knew what the problem was but were either too scared to show it or afraid to suggest that reality itself is “racist.”

However, If you ever wondered what the movie Deathwish might be like with an excellent actor in the lead role this is the movie for you.

On a larger societal note I have to wonder if this film will serve the same function that Deathwish or the Dirty Harry films served here in the States. In the mid seventies managerial Liberalism appeared to be triumphant, and the Dirty Harry films were set in San Francisco to rub our faces in that fact, yet these films which were wildly popular seemed to set the stage for the coming Conservative cultural battles of the eighties.

Will Harry Baker serve the same function for Brits? I’d like to think so but in my more pessimistic moments I do think they’ve given up and are too far gone to stage a comeback. It seems to me that when a people allow themselves to be disarmed they’ve given up the game civilization wise.

One final thought: People will be offering up hundreds of diagnosises of what the “real problem” is In Britain, my .02? This is the harsh reality of Socialism, it needs to be said that this is the end result when people allow themselves to be subdued and disarmed by their government. Those same governments always grow hostile to the traditional peoples of their lands and ultimately seek to replace them.


  1. Yes, Britain is a good example of how damaging the welfare state and/or collapse of moral culture can be *regardless* of race. While the non-whites are the biggest problem in Britain, the white chavs are bad enough on their own. Other European countries have so far withstood their welfare states and decadent modern cultures; their combination of that with non-white immigration will come to a reckoning before their white populations ever fall that low. But Britain shows it can happen to whites.

  2. Anarcho-tyranny is the best thing I’ve seen from Francis. It perfectly captures the “Who-whom?” identity politics of our masters. We definitely live in an Anarcho-tyrannical kleptocracy here in the States.

  3. There really are riches in this film, but the cowardly avoidance of race, and you really can tell they chickened out, was a disappointment.

    You know, at first people wondered where Kierkegaard’s mother was in all of his work since the other people in his life were so adequately represented by characters in his work. I’m not sure who the first astute observer to realize that his mother tongue stood in for her.

    There might not be in any blacks, but they are there, even in their absence. The corruption and fall from grace is generally a symbol and fitting token for all of niggerdom. How can one get a movie made if it is honest? This is the way it must be done.

  4. Also strike the first ‘in’ from the second paragraph as well.

    Additionally, this: The corruption and fall from grace is generally a symbol and fitting token for all of niggerdom. should read: The corruption of the white man and the fall from grace of his civilization is utilized as a symbol and stands as a fitting token for the rise of niggerdom.

    Ugh. Sorry bout that.

  5. We have allies with our enemies. Robert Rodriquez put out his racially inflammatory trailer for “Machete” to coincide with Arizona’s law. It does seem the SWPL liberals that Kalb describes are losing control, and even the favorite strategy of ignoring the anti-white rhetoric is working less and less.

  6. I got a kick out of how foul the Puerto Rican community was portrayed in the NC-17 version of Harvey Keitel’s Bad Lieutenant. It was largely meant to shock with over the top scenes which were funny in a dark comedic way, but made little effort to hide what a degenerate cesspool Dinkins’ NYC was at the time.

  7. “We have allies with our enemies. Robert Rodriquez put out his racially inflammatory trailer for “Machete” to coincide with Arizona’s law.”

    Someone just recently sent me a link to that. I mean…WTF?!?!?

    Just as Inglorious Bas-turds was the ultimate Jewish wet-dream revenge fantasy, this movie seems to act as the same sort of thing for illegal (and most legal) Mexicans and their supporters. Pure anit-White, laid bare for all to see. Good in the sense I suppose that perhaps more people will realize the scope of the forces aligned against them if just a few scales drop from their eyes.

  8. BTW, I love the idea of more movie reviews. I have always enjoyed the pro-White and unique insight provided here (and at OQO). One of my favorite bits of info I gleaned, I think from the Occidental Quarterly blog was a good movie list from Yggdrasil, along with a reminder of the importance of building up a good media library source for the future.
