Review by Ginger Mayerson
I've no idea why this didn't have a wider theatrical release. It is the perfect geek-date movie. Well, maybe that's why; not many geeks date, even though they should. It's only on DVD, so, fanboys, IF you can do dinner-and-a-movie at your or her (or his) place without getting your face slapped, THIS could be the movie for you. Provided your date can read subtitles without moving her (or his) lips. Or maybe you like that; I'm sure I wouldn't know. Or if you're already in a relationship and you want to show the woman (or man) who loves you very much how very bad it could have been and how very good it really is with you, then THIS is the movie for you.

On April 13, 1873, over 100 black men were killed in Colfax Louisiana following disputes over the results of a local election the previous fall. The election had been very close and the departing Democratic governor of Louisiana had appointed winners from his own party, but when the administration changed with a new governor in the spring, the Republican contenders were appointed instead, a white man named Shaw and a black man named Register. The two men tried to take their offices at the Colfax courthouse, and the white population of the area responded with rumors of racial rioting and uprisings; when Register, Shaw, and their adherents refused to leave the courthouse, a small army of white men surrounded the building and eventually forced the occupants out and massacred them. Others who fled the courthouse were captured later that day and also killed. [more]
