“Exterminate All the Brutes” Review

With Raoul Peck, Josh Hartnett, Denis Lyons, Caisa Ankarsparre. The path to the new world, an unsettling and intricate story of genocides. Conquest, slavery and the fabrication of “Whiteness”.

A four hour movie in four 1 hour parts, “Exterminate All The Brutes” is a tightly woven story of the act of genocide, how it happened in the past, how it’s happening now, and leaves us with the thought that it’s not a lack of knowledge of the situation, or a lack of awareness, but a lack motivation to do anything about it. There’s some fictional stuff thrown in with Josh Harnett and others that I don’t really care for, but the rest of the material is top notch and well worth your time, especially if you have HBOMax already.

I should also like to point out that there’s a fantastic Director’s Statement on the HBO site that I didn’t watch until after the entire thing was watched.  I’m not sure if watching it before I started would have impacted my impressions at all.
