HERE ARE A FEW REVIEWS FROM THE FIRST FILM

Tim Alexander’s “Diary Of A Tired Black Man” a whole new Genre In Film

Documentaries are a very special branch of the art of cinema. It’s purpose can range from entertainment to instruction usually based on some true events or controversial subject. The documentary can put you in the middle of history or show you the lives of regular people that otherwise you would never be aware of. The genre grew out of the old theatrical newsreels. Back in the day long before television took hold of almost every home in the country the people would go to the movie houses and stay for the entire evening. During that time you would get to watch a feature film, a secondary flick, a few cartoons and a newsreel. This was the way that facts and opinions were expressed and lead directly to a lengthier version that we call the documentary. Now it is one of the only genre to get its own category in many award shows including the much lauded Academy Awards; the genre is that special and different. Over time the documentary would take on many varied forms. Some documentary filmmakers keep a distance from their subject. Others insert themselves directly in the action. It may seem that the format has become routine and some may say even hackney but there is hope in the horizon. Independent filmmaker Tim Alexander has come up with an extremely fresh and novel approach to this type of film with his work ‘Diary of a Tired Black Man’. He uses professional actors to play out a situation to invoke an emotional response in his audience. Many documentaries have used actors for reenactments of scenes that occurred in history but this movie combines the documentary with the comedy drama with stunning results. The uniqueness of this film does not stop with its construction and presentation. The marketing involved a model that will certainly become heavily used as time goes on. A three-minute clip was posted on the Internet and soon made its way around the world. This served to tease the viewers and greatly increase the anticipation for the full film. The film had some showings in various Indy film festivals but its wide release will be through its DVD premiere handled by Magnolia Home Entertainment. They have always managed to locate the little gems out there in the independent film world and bring them into the house of movie buffs everywhere.

This is the first film for Tim Alexander and like many new filmmakers he has taken on more than one hat for the production. He is a true renaissance man capable of handing just about every job function needed in a film crew. It is not unusual for one person to take on writing, direction and production but that is only the tip of the iceberg for Alexander. He wrote the musical score, designed the sets, handled the makeup, wardrobe and worked the camera. It isn’t mentioned in the credits but I would not be surprised if he also cooked and served at the craft service table. To say this was an ambitious undertaking for Alexander would be a gross underestimation and disservice to the man. What is most amazing is this was his initial foray into all these jobs. If you looked at his resume with all these jobs on a single film you most likely wouldn’t believe it at all. The most incredible thing is the fact that Alexander wildly succeeds in each of these functions; he is a one-man film school. Needless to say this movie is a work of love for him. This is something that jumps off the screen and pulls the audience in; the sheer love for cinema that Alexander possesses. He certainly had help with crafting this film but this is completely his project.

As the title of the film lets on, this movie focuses on relationships in the African American community. While the viewpoints are specific to this portion of our society, the issues at the heart of the film are universal in nature. No matter what ethnic group you happen to belong to themes such as passion, love, hate and revenge are part of your emotional makeup. This movie examines the difficulty between black men and women in maintaining a relationship. It does touch on some of the unique and very specific circumstances, history and obstacles that face the African Americans but can be translated to one degree or another to anyone. It treads the fine line between being so general as to lose its impact and being overly critical of a single group. This is a raw and at times an emotionally draining film to watch. There is purity to the way the actors let loose on each other that are captivating even if painful at times to view. Alexander certainly knew that he was going to stir up a hornet’s nest with the release of this movie. Members of the black community are sure to be divided with what they take away from viewing this film. The part of the focus that is less universal in the most important to the production in many ways. Alexander wanted to expose the effects of tradition, media expectation and prejudice on the black relationship. While all groups have their own variations and will be able to use that to appreciate the film it is targeted and acts as magnifying glass to bring all the harsh details to light. It is this juxtaposition of the highly specific to the general that makes this a brilliant work.

The film stars Jimmy Jean-Louis who plays the mind-bending superhero Haitian on the NBC television series ‘Heroes’. Here he portrays James, a black man who is just trying to navigate the murky waters of relationships. The first shot of him is James sitting back having a cup of coffee as he reads an entry from the titular diary. In the time in point he went to pick up his daughter from the home of his ex-wife, Tanya (Paula Lema). Also there, however, were Tanya’s three friends. The big mistake that James made in the eyes of his ex and her friends was to show up with a white woman. This is shown in the three minute clip presented here window box for effect. As Tanya meets James at the door the attack immediately escalates. She is resentful not only that he dare to bring another woman to pick up his daughter but the fact that she is white is too much. Tanya taunts him saying that he couldn’t find a black woman who would lay back ad let him walk all over her. James does try to keep his composure throughout the heated exchange as the friends begin to chime in with their own sharp barbs. James does point out a bit of possible hypocrisy since one of Tanya’s friends is dating a white man. They twist that around on James in short order.

The film stays true to the documentary style throughout. It is gritty and realistic with a power to it that is amazing. Some may argue that this is just another drama but it is far more. It is a documentary in the sense that it takes a real situation and presents it through the perception of the filmmaker. While the characters may be portrayed by actors and extremely talented ones at that, there is a reality here that is rarely if ever caught in a standard film. This is an important piece of cinema and one that should not be missed.

Rating 3.5 out of 4 Stars 

About Tim Alexander

Tim Alexander started his career as a fashion photographer with no real experience as a filmmaker. After a life of making bad choices in the women he chose to deal with, he decided to make this film, by himself as a crew of one, to show the world the challenges a good man has in a relationship. It was a personal challenge to tell his personal story through the lead character Jimmy Jean-Louis.

Film Review - 

The Kansas City Star - By ROBERT W. BUTLER
‘Diary of a Tired Black Man’ is bound to raise some issues

Like pebbles dropped in still water, some movies create ripples that spread to cover the entire culture. “Diary of a Tired Black Man” is one of those ripple-makers. Except it’s more like a hand grenade tossed into a toilet!

Tim Alexander’s super low-budget film, fresh to DVD this week, is nothing less than a messy, sincere and occasionally savage dissection of male/female relationships, particularly as experienced by African-Americans.

Once people catch on to this movie — and it’s only a matter of time — it should have a major sociological and cultural impact.

This is not to say that “Diary” is great art ... just the right movie at the right time.

It began with a three-minute Internet short Alexander wrote and directed a couple of years back. In it a divorced black father named James (Jimmy Jean-Louis, the memory-stealing “Haitian” on TV’s “Heroes”) shows up at his former home to pick up his daughter for a weekend.

His ex, Tonya (Paula Lema), is waiting with several of her gal pals. They’re livid that James has shown up with his current girlfriend, a white woman who waits outside in his car.

In response to their insults that he’s a typical black man and “too weak to deal with a strong black woman,” James announces that he’s not weak. He’s tired — tired of pointless fighting, tired of useless confrontations. He points out that he was faithful throughout the marriage, that he provided the luxurious home in which Tonya lives and that he’s never missed an alimony payment. Oh, and by the way, it’s nobody’s business whom he dates.

In short, he silences the angry women.

“Tired Black Man”— the short that opens this DVD package — became a viral sensation. Subsequently Alexander traveled to several cities showing the short to men and women and videotaped hours of their reactions and comments. Later he wrote and directed several additional scenes depicting pivotal moments from James and Tonya’s marriage.

All these elements have been loosely thrown together for the DVD package, a provocative mashup of fiction, documentary and cinematic essay.

If you really want the full experience, watch “Diary” with Alexander’s commentary track, in which he codifies his ideas about ABWS — Angry Black Woman Syndrome. There’s an epidemic of ABWS, he claims, and it’s threatening the very soul of African-American culture.

Alexander — he says he’s been a victim of ABWS — acknowledges that many women have reason to be angry after being abused and used by their men. (He also chides women for choosing “bad” boys when there are plenty of decent guys out there.) But so many women have become so angry that they cannot appreciate even good, upstanding black men, he maintains. And angry women rarely enjoy lasting relationships.

Some of Alexander’s comments are sure to stir controversy:
“Women will get into another woman’s relationship in a finger snap.”

Women “will attack like pack animals. They all come and circle around you and rip your flesh off.”

The older women get, according to Alexander, the more self-aware they become and the less likely they are to blame everything on men: “The second and third marriages are more successful not because we found someone better, but because we found ourselves.”

Fascinating insight into human relationships? Or just genteel misogyny?

Arguing those points is what makes “Diary of a Tired Black Man” so interesting. Expect “Tired Black Man” discussion groups to spring up in church basements and at community centers. Alexander — a fashion photographer who has never made a film before — even provides a “cuss-free” version on this DVD so that it can be enjoyed by those who cannot tolerate rude talk.

Rude talk or not, expect “Diary of a Tired Black Man” to raise voices and blood pressure. Can a movie be a culture changer? If so, this is a prime candidate.

Diary of a Tired Black Man
Magnolia Home Entertainment // R // February 3, 2009 Review by David Walker
| posted March 1, 2009

The Film:

I liked Diary of a Tired Black Man. In fact, I really liked it a lot. This comes as something of a surprise, because to be perfectly frank and honest, it really didn't look that good to me. And to take that frankness and honesty one step further, the film does have some problems that will likely turn some people off; but that's neither here nor there, because what this film does have is a raw honesty that is as entertaining as it educational as it is uncompromising.

Writer, producer and director Tim Alexander's Diary of a Tired Black Man is an interesting mix of documentary and dramatic reenactment. The project started out as a three-minute short that Alexander posted on the Internet, where it garnered millions of hits and sparked considerable debate. In the short, a group of angry black women are sitting around Tonya's (Paula Lema) living room bashing black men. When Tonya's ex-husband James (Jimmy Jean-Louis) arrives to pick up their daughter, with a white woman in tow, he is on the receiving end of the fury of Tonya and her friends. But rather than fall victim to the verbal lashing the women dish out, James stands up for himself, and puts the women, and especially his ex-wife, back in their place.

With the original short as a springboard, Alexander traveled all over the United States, showed various men and women his film, and then interviewed them on camera about their feelings. Diary of a Tired Black Man consists of those interviews inter-cut with more scenes depicting the relationship between James and Tonya, starting with the beginning, and culminating in the destruction of the marriage. The final film is a compelling, and often no-holds-barred examination of how black men feel about how some black women treat them--and it ain't always pretty. In interview after interview, the men offer well thought out--and often hilarious-- explanations about why some black women treat some black men so terrible. Meanwhile, even though some of the women interviewed by Alexander have valid things to say, some are complete idiots.

Diary of a Tired Black Man works for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it is honest-- brutally so at times--but certainly more honest than the vast majority of other depictions of black men in the mass media. This film stands in direct defiance of shows like Jerry Springer or Maury Povitch, which choose to represent the worst of black masculinity. But the film also works as a refreshing break from the hackneyed films of Tyler Perry, whose faith-based minstrel/drag shows are favored by many of the same women who need to watch this movie.

Alexander's film is at its best when he is interviewing real people on the street. His staged scenes are okay, and he deserves credit for creating something with almost nothing, but at the end of the day, those scenes are not compelling enough to carry the film. And to his credit, if Alexander had simply made a conventional film, he would have likely made something that had no real bite to it. But as it stands, Diary of a Tired Black Man goes for the jugular (in a loving way designed to spark conversation and promote emotional growth).

Diary of a Tired Black Man will not be for everyone, that's for sure. But if you have ever endured bad relationships, or multiple bad relationships, then it is a film well worth watching, as it raises some very valid points. And what is also very important to realize is that while the film specifically deals with black people, its overall subject matter is universally human.

Video:

Diary of a Tired Black Man is presented in 1.78:1 widescreen. The movie was shot on consumer grade digital video, but it looks far better than one would expect. And while the picture quality is not great, it is good, and the quality remains consistent.

Audio:

Diary of a Tired Black Man is presented in English 2.0 Dolby Digital. The sound quality is good, especially considering that most of the interviews were shot outdoors. The sound is clear, audio levels are good, and the overall mix is clean.

Bonus Material:

Writer/producer/director Tim Alexander provides one of the best commentaries I have heard in a long time. Not only does he offer insight into the production of the film, he also elaborates on his personal feelings about the subject matter. His tone is very casual and matter of fact, often funny, and though the film itself is not the sort that might make you want to listen to the commentary right away, it is well worth checking out. Alexander has also included a reel of extended interview footage (73 min.) that is almost as compelling as the film itself. Finally, there is a profanity-free version of the film, but I didn't watch it, because I don't give a shit about things like that.

Final Thoughts:

I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed Diary of a Tired Black Man, and it is definitely one of nicest surprises I've had in a long time. It definitely is not a film for everyone, and it's up to you to determine if this subject matter interests you; but if you do watch it, make sure you take the time to also listen to Tim Alexander’s audio commentary and watch the extended interview footage. But as far as recommending it, I'd be hard pressed to sing the film's praises anymore than I am.

4 of 5 Stars - Highly Recommended

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I will have no major challenges to fulfill my goal in making this film and issuing it's rewards for your donations. Being that I am a self contained production company that does not need to outsource this production, it will not be in risk going over budget. This is also a follow-up to a very successful film, and my third feature film production so I am not new to this level of filmmaking, and have much experience and understanding of what I must do to complete this project at the highest standards, and all fulfillment will be carried out with experience and ease! All actors are in place and ready, and all rewards are easy to fulfill. The only way I will not get this done is an early death - and I am very healthy and committed to this project and have history and a track record!

FAQ

  • If I don't raise the $75,000 I am seeking as my base pledge, all of the pledged money you made will be returned to you on your credit card and you will not be charged anything at all. If I reach the $75,000 i am seeking and no more, I can complete the first film of the two films I want to do with no problem, and I will then raise more money for part 3 at a later time. It is all of the pledge or I get nothing, so the project can not be partially funded, and if it is funded, it will be completed.
