Stirictly for those who love Marxist jargon. I expected a documentary on the Black Panther movement.

This just focuses on Newton talking endlessly about possibilities for a future revolution, etc.

There is a documentary about the Panthers in the SD library system. Look for it. It's really good. Unfortunately, I can recall the title just now.
