The most brutal slavery movie I've seen yet, though peppered with humor all over the place: it's a dark comedy/satire, which is a rather daring approach considering the subject material. It's interesting to note the cruelty Black people here face, which isn't better than that of farm animals. Makes me feel guilty for eating meat, much like Roger Ebert makes me feel for calling this movie good.

I wish more effort should have been made to make the blood more convincing. The weirdness of the final scenes, those shot in modern days, isn't welcome either. They are too eccentric and meaningless.
