Editorial Reviews

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.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be 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

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.

There is something profoundly elegant about just pointing a camera at people and letting them expose their own ridiculousness. I could have asked for some more sophisticated editing, but the benefit of minimal editing is that there's no question of something being taken out of context. I particularly love the guy saying that in "final days," people will go back to their ancestral place; this apparently does not include white people in America going back to Europe. I actually had to pause while I laughed at that one. To hear people who actually believe in human telegony professing the innately superior intellects of white people, or a man with a European accent complaining about non-white immigrants, pretty hoists them by their own petard. Yes, these people really are just that ridiculous. Dangerous and hateful, but ridiculous.

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.

Creepy, weird, disturbing look inside a Klan/ Neo Nazi meeting in Michigan years ago, a few years before Michael Moore made it big with "Roger and Me"...little of interest or surprising views here...we have seen and heard it all many times before.

I had to stop watching. People were proud to feel superior due to their race, and not arrogant about it. They just knew this was true and felt that God meant this. However, many other countries have racism as part of their culture. Be careful of judging.
Sometimes I think there is a place in Vancouver for me.

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.

I first heard of this title back in the 80's when a documentary about this phenomenon of hate was shown on PBS.
As someone intrigued by what makes humans tick, why they express such hate for one another primarily due to skin color, and how they subsequently feel compelled to act out that hate in most barbaric and buffoonish ways, I felt the urge to buy the book and then see the dvd.
Some other reviewer felt disappointed with the production, etc. But let's not be distracted by the surface of this product. Instead, concentrate on what it shows about the visceral nature of racial hatred in this country and how it poisons the minds of children and future generations.
I highly recommend this product, especially because you get to hear the words from the hate and fear mongers themselves rather than just a scholarly presentation of this dysfunction; an illness that potentially lies within all of us humans.
