"A very entertaining, complex film." — Vincent Canby, The New York Times

"Burnett's acute and sensitive direction is free of hackneyed movie conventions; even something as simple as a hello is said differently from the way you've heard it in any other movie." — Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Featured in SPRITS OF REBELLION (playing August 27), Charles Burnett was one of the major figures associated with the UCLA-based "LA Rebellion" group. This dark, semi-mystical comedy was too offbeat and unpredictable to succeed at the box office, but its reputation has soared over the years. Danny Glover delivers a sensational performance as Harry Mention, a folkloric Trickster who insinuates himself into a middle-class South Central household and proceeds to spread discord, doubt, and disease. Is he human or demon? And how can his hosts get rid of him? New 4K DCP digital restoration courtesy of Sony Pictures Entertainment. (MR)
