Green Book Movie Review

Green Book Movie Review

This movie is a real-life story about a world-class African pianist back in the old days in the USA. He was so good at his craft and had trained and achieved degrees. He played for the only white audience but was not allowed to sit at the same table with them or use the same toilets as them.

One incident occurred at the end of his tour when he was not allowed to eat in the same place where white people were eating, even though he was the star they came to watch. He was asked to go and eat inside the storage room. He faced police brutality a lot and had to just overlook it. He was treated so badly by white people, despite his success.

This movie is so triggering, and I can’t imagine what those slaves had to go through to survive and how racism is still a thing on this earth. Honestly, it’s hard to watch all these movies and read history books and not get angry about these silly things racist white people did. There was a Green Book that showed you the hotels and places where black people were accepted. The segregation is deep. I don’t understand the hate for black people. Someone, please explain. You capture people from their country, kill some on the way, enslave them, and make them work like animals, and then you hate that they exist. Make it make sense. This is stupidity at its highest level. A group of people with ego issues and mental health problems.

A lot of people still think they are better than others, and it’s crazy. This movie taught me patience. Dr. Shirley was a peaceful and patient man who just wanted to do music. He finally found a home with his driver, who stood by him.

Summary: The film Green Book recounts the bond that developed in the 1960s between Tony "Lip" Vallelonga, Don Shirley's driver and bodyguard. Don Shirley is a well-known pianist and composer. The primary focus of the action will be the many cultures and social strata. The strongest point is Mortensen's and Ali's chemistry together. The whole movie would collapse without it.

Overall, this is a very good movie, with great acting. The lead actor played an important role in reflecting on what it was like to be black in America. performance worthy of an award.

Each time I read books and watch movies that tell core stories about racism, I just can't help but ask: How much pain and broken were these people? How sad were their days? How many people suffered and never knew peace? These questions are difficult.

  3. Bellissimo questo film, io l'avevo visto al cinema 😄

  4. Racism and misogyny are some of the worst and most incomprehensible things. I also don't understand why some people want to manage other people's lives, take away their freedom and exploit them.
    Interesting movie, which I would like to see. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Such a great month to review this movie. It is a slice of Americana that one might wonder. Such a vibrant story and a great one to know. These are two beautiful actors, as well. So poignant. Thanks for your review.

  9. I didn't know what the green book was about before. Great movie. 👍

  10. I love this movie and Viggo Mortensen.

  11. I haven't heard of this film, but it sounds good. It must take place in the south where there were laws about white and blacks mixing. It was a sad time in history.
