Scary look at life in the US under Confederate rule in Spike Lee presented mock-doc

 

If you can clamber around the hype and hip releases hitting your multiplex this weekend, you might just find a little nugget in the shape of CSA: The Confederate States Of America tucked away somewhere.

Presented by Spike Lee, newbie helmer Kevin Willmott’s flick takes the guise of a British documentary that shows how America would have turned out if the South had won the war.

Humorous but often pretty startling, this mockumentary is a startling look at how slavery would have evolved in the 21st century, complete with ad breaks that are so damn real it’s worrying.
