Product Description

A riveting, jaw-dropping view of America's white supremacy movement. Rare archival footage, darkly humorous interviews, and their own promotional materials bring to light the inner workings of the Ku Klux Klan, the American Nazi Party, the Aryan Nation, The Order and other radical right groups. With a folksy, matter-of-fact certainty, the men and women here speak of imminent race wars, Armageddon, theHolocaust "hoax", interracial breeding, the Christian Identity faith, the hordes of foreign troops poised to attack America, and "ZOG" - the Zion Occupation Government. In the wake of Oklahoma City, it's clear the radical right are not the patriotic, bedrock Americans they claim to be, nor harmless in their lunacies either. Controversial and timely, Blood in the Face reveals a dark and dangerous side of America.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Review

Truly bizarre! Without a zombie in sight, this is the best horror film in years. --Austin Chronicle

The filmmakers use no voice-over narration. They allow people and events to speak for themselves. Blood in the Face is first-rate journalism. --NY Times

The scariest movie of the year! --New York Daily News

Format: VHS Tape
This is an interesting and worthwhile video to see. The core issue comes during one of the interviews, when a grandfatherly man tells the interviewer that while he knows the filmmakers are using and making fun of them, they are also using the filmmakers to get their message out. Some of the characters in the film are nothing more than silly, such as the adolescents dressing up in SS uniforms, calling themselves the "Action group", and declaring that they are ready for anything. Others are more serious: true believers who are not just playing a role, but see themselves as activists for the White race. All in all, it gives everyone something to think about, from the screaming liberal, to the disaffected White man or woman looking for a connection.

From the "grand old man" George Lincoln Rockwell to today's wanna-be Stormtroopers, the militant fringe is exposed in their own words. Seething with hate, and ready for an excuse to launch a "rahowa" (Racial Holy War). This film is as disturbing as it is necessary to watch. If you can find it, watch the even earlier documentary "California Reich" to see this madness in it's incubation.

In "Heart of Darkness," Joseph Conrad's character Kurtz's famous dying words are "The horror! The horror!" Kurtz has looked into the face of evil, and the experience was so explosive that it destroyed him.

Conrad's characterization of evil as a mysterious, implacable, overwhelming, consciously malevolent "heart of darkness" is one that most of us resonate with. But as philosopher Hannah Arendt pointed out in the early 1960s when covering the trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann, evil can also be "banal." Part of what she meant is the process that occurs when people fail to think or judge rationally, and so just accept as "normal" certain kinds of behavior that critical reflection would spot as wicked. But in using the word "banal," Arendt also wanted to de-melodramatize evil. Evil actions are more often sordid and grimy, based on ignorance and stereotypes, than diabolically clever.

"Blood in the Face" (which takes its title from the racist myth that only Aryans have moral sensibilities and are capable of blushing) is a perfect example of the banality of evil in both senses. Filmed at a Michigan gathering of Nazis, KKKers, and Christian Identity loyalists, the film exposes the sheer stupidity, paranoia, and incoherence of the True Believers.

Perhaps nowhere is the pathetic nature of it all better captured than in the description of George Lincoln Rockwell's tawdry murder at a laundromat.

This isn't even amusing as a comedy. What a bunch of simpletons and losers. The rally in the beginning looks more like a backwater tag sale than a meeting. I'm of white, Scandinavian heritage and these guys just come across as an embarrassment to the white race. Most of them still live in their parents' basement and pop zits day and night, between shifts at the Dollar Store. American Nazis, indeed. What a bunch of misdirected morons. What the Nazis did in WWII were crimes against humanity and these guys talk about it like they're selling raffle tickets for the Chamber of Commerce. Oh yes; the quality of the video is poor and very, very dated as well. Either that or they can only afford cars that cost $125.00.

"Blood in the face" refers to the extreme right-wing Christian belief that only white people can blush. Jews, Hispanics, Arabs, blacks, anyone who isn't of northern European extraction can't show blood in their face, according to these misguided folk. It's scary that the people interviewed in this film exist, especially since they're armed to the teeth and believe they're on a mission from God. The followers are uneducated, and all are filled with hate. They fear anyone who isn't "Aryan." They deny the Holocaust happened. They think the government and media are run by Jews. They call non-whites "mud people." And they wish all of them dead.
This was Michael Moore's first foray into filmmaking. He had originally been approached by James Ridgeway to ask the leader of a militia group in Michigan if it would be alright if Ridgeway could film a gathering of various militias/Nazis/Aryan Nations/Christian Identity followers, etc. Moore had interviewed the head of the militia group on a radio show, so he knew him. Moore was also asked to help interview the participants at the gathering.
It is interesting to see, in 2012, the predictions these haters made back in the late '80s. They feared the Hispanic population would exceed the white population. They feared the country would be "taken over" by "mud people," and now Barack Obama is president. They consider those things to be bad. It's sort of like watching the birth of the Tea Party, or being at CPAC. They want to "take their country back."
