The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith

Director: Fred Schepisi
Year Released: 1978
Rating: 2.0

Too-simple look at the poor treatment a half-aborigine/half-white man (Tommy Lewis) receives at the hand of White Australian society - he builds fences (symbolism alert!), he's polite, he marries a white woman (and has a white child ... though it isn't his own) and still gets cheated by the unsympathetic populace, who refuse to accept him. It's a film in two parts, really: the first is the constant mistreatment (he gets called "black bastard" and similar insults), the second is the title character's violent outburst and revenge, where he kills women and children and leaves (some of) the men alive to suffer. In essence, this is I Spit on Your Grave without the rape but with the racism (and lovely scenery).
