He is mute, with three-toed feet, and the magical ability to repair machinery and heal wounds. Other than that, he is a typical Afro-American. An alien castaway, after crashing his spaceship on Ellis Island, blends in with all offbeat NY tribes of barflies, junkies, loonies, racist cops, blue-collar everyday heroes, unaware that he’s under surveillance. A sarcastic deconstruction of all conventional narratives on racial segregation and immigrant ordeal by the Pope of American politicized cinema, John Sayles.
