  • Critic Reviews
    "NATIVE LAND is some kind of great movie....As the unseen narrator, Robeson lends his powerful voice and rhythmic phrasing..."
    New York Times

    "[T]his classy set offers context by packaging a spiffier-looking THE EMPEROR JONES with five other features."
    USA Today

    "[I]t's a fascinating package that can't help but shed much valuable light on one of the last century's most complex and contradictory careers."
