The Banker really ‘racist,’ but good. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

HOLLYWOOD – Are you black and can’t get a loan? If so, you can probably relate to George Nolfi’s recently released drama “The Banker.” Despite garnering a middling score of 68 percent on Rotten Tomatoes’ renowned Tomatometer, the bodacious film still gets a thumbs up for a trio of crackerjack performances by Anthony Mackie (Bernard Garrett), Samuel L. Jackson (Joe Morris) and Nicholas Hoult (Matt Steiner). Based on a true story in the ’60s, “The Banker” illuminates the redline struggles of two negro proprietors — Garrett and Morris — who are relegated to remunerating a working-class white man (Steiner) to be the pretentious countenance of their real estate firm while they pose as a custodian and chauffeur.

After marrying whilom club entertainer Eunice (Nia Long) in 1963, Garrett relocated to Los Angeles to concoct the venture. But the banks refused to give his black ass a loan because of skin pigmentation. Determined to launch his métier, Garrett formed a partnership with Morris and the rest is history.

“The Banker” was supposed to premiere last November. But the movie was pulled last minute due to “potentially damaging charges that surfaced from a family member of the Garretts.”

Do you plan to descry the film?

    I saw the movie today. I liked the business relationship and friendship between Anthony Mackie and Samuel Jackson as men. Plus, I like how the filmmakers illustrated how discrimination in the real estate and banking industries have prevented African Americans from building wealth in this country. Good film!!!
