    I'm reading the Toni Morrison's novel for my neo-slave narratives class, along text papers about Margert Garner.

    that tree that they carved in sethe's back it looks like it was due to some kind of voodoo.

    I saw where this movie was not only drama but horror too.

    Beloved was a demon. Demons pose as familiar spirits to consume and feed off of fear and depression. Beloved would say that Seth was hers as if she's soul tied to her. The extreme tragedy of Sethe killing her child, along with the depression, isolation, and the community's unwillingnes to forgive her created the right environment for beloved to conjure up. The community joining together to sing that Sethe will find rest in the arms of Jesus gave me chills. Letting go of the past hurt and resting and the arms of Jesus allowed her to really be free.

    It had taken me close to 20 years to watch this movie again. I believe I was to young and naive to appreciate then. However over those years parts of this movie stayed with me. Quotes and sences I would recall remembering. Now that I'm 36 I will finally sit and watch with a greater understanding view. Thank you for posting this film.

    why was the white man crying when she killed the baby and stabbed the boys?
  • Mutmainnah Black 2017-01-12 07:10:03
    wow. I am still stuck on the explanation on how the poltergiest of Sethe's child was re-incarnated. Of course the praises of the Godly women banished the evil.

    Powerful. Incredibly moving. Great film. After all the injustice, the sorrows, the disappointments, the ambiguity, all with no relief. The exorcism was a tremendous release from the bondage of all this - those strong, believing, understanding women. My heart busted with relieve. What we don't know about the Black experience in our country; what we don't appreciate; what we refuse to see, to listen, to understand the hurt, the damage, the sense of being overwhelmed, of being trapped in an evil, unfair maze constructed by those who don't really care about the desperation and the confusions of a complicated existence - and we Whites don't see we are as trapped as those we have trapped. But, those women knew that God is not only love; he is justice, and there can be no peace without both, no unity, no community of caring. Oprah did a great work here. Who really knew the depth of the suffering and confusion, the hurt and unrelenting pain. All our pain will be resolved when re reach out to heal each other in justice, love and TRUTH. What a movie!!!!

    This book, and "Paradise" confused the hell out of me. I had to read this over and over again, and the movie was no better. But after watching and reading it over 100x's over the past 16 years, I kind of get it. Toni Morrison is an awesome novelist!!!

    i had to watch this movie two times in order to understand this movie. the evil entity that was in the house transformed into beloved. so beloved was really an evil entity beloved was not human. at the end the ladies came and casted out the evil entity back to the pits. also the mother and daughter been living with the evil entity for years in the house.
