Pressure Point Blu-ray Review


“If there is reason for the film to be discovered, it’s Poitier’s exhilarating final monologue, blasting his patient’s blind ambivalence to an ugly cause. Distressing, Poitier’s words (“This is my country!”) fiercely reject a gross ideal which hasn’t changed. Darin’s belief in an “all-white Christian America” remain part of crude political dialogs. No matter how fierce Poitier becomes – here or via In the Heat of the Night – the words must bounce off their target.”
