No God, No Master2013

  • 3.5
When a series of package bombs show up on the doorsteps of prominent politicians and businessmen in the summer of 1919, U.S. Bureau of Investigation Agent William Flynn is assigned the task of finding those responsible. He becomes immersed in an investigation that uncovers an anarchist plot to destroy democracy. Inspired by true events of the 20's the film sets the stage for a timely thriller with resoundingly similar parallels to the contemporary war on terrorism and the role government plays to defeat it.

Terry Green's No God, No Master (2013) is a good, solid crime narrative set in the early 1920's. It has all the appropriate settings, and costumes that you'd expect fro a period piece. This is a "cops and bad guys" story with a decidedly political twist. There are romantic and political aspects to the storyline too, so this film is far from being one dimensional. The cinematography is great. No "hidden meaning", or esoteric symbolism here. This is a good storytelling film that just "spins a good yarn". And a "good yarn" it is. This film offers an different kind of crime story that is intriguing, engaging, and compelling. The film also informed me about an issue in American History of which I was previously ignorant. Just sit back with the beer and the popcorn, and get ready for a good time.

I don't know how they made Sacco and Venzetti boring, but they managed it.

Talk about agents provocateur! I thought I knew about the period of the Palmer Raids but this puts a whole new twist on them. All these historical figures and Palmer himself endangering the public to whip them up against emigrants. I thought he had been bombed himself. Wonder how history would have been different if Agent Flynn stayed head of FBI.

Plodding and stilted story acted out by actors obviously acting.

I really liked this film, a historically based crime story with a new back story on a famous series of incidences, the labor movement, and immigration. Certainly felt applicable to today as well.

I recommend this period mystery for those that like a bit of education with their entertainment.

Straithairn is underestimated in Hollywood - decent chops over the years. His look plays nicely against the 1920's backdrop. A young J Edgar was a nice touch from the director. Andrea Grano is more than decent. All else were replaceable. It was a good attempt at an old story.
