Watch 42 movie, a sport movie by written and directed by Brian Helgeland. Sport as an end in itself is only the embodiment of sleazy politics of bread and circuses, a sad fact that the mean and comfortable contemporary world does not think about changing, but stories of overcoming such the view at 42 – the story of a legend tips while return to practice the noble role to inspire, unite despite differences and further away some tears.
To do so , however , the director and screenwriter Brian Helgeland uses some tricks milkshakes and shamelessly manipulates the viewer who , although aware of this , it ignores the mechanisms thanks to the strength of the story of the first black player in major League baseball : Jackie Robinson .
Thus , the narrative returns to the post – 2nd World War when the U.S. geopolitical prosperity was tainted by racial segregation found mainly in sports. This panorama only began to suffer slightly changed after the entrepreneur Branch Rickey. From there , Brian Helgeland focus on developing square, safe and Manichean where most whites discriminate and humiliate the protagonist black , and those who do not suffer reprisals corresponding to skin color .
However , there is nothing wrong to provoke and disgust the audience with a hero more victims of oppression , especially for the competent performance of Chadwick Boseman requires recognition instead of compassion , which is still reflected in most of the events presented.
The schematic to introduce a “villain ” German or demonstrate the growing sympathy for Jackie with a player sorry erased momentarily sad and compelling as it shows the indoctrination of a child to be racist. Furthermore, the use of colors and tones washed cuttlefish in photography Don Burgess and monochromatic costumes evoke saving how outmoded was the 40s and therefore the actual racism.
And even though Jackie Robinson did not require so many tears and applause as the Brian Helgeland introduces here , at least they have the service of a good movie that lives up to the legend .
