Mr. Freedom is a pro-American Right superhero who fights for God and country by beating, robbing, raping, and killing anyone who looks like they might disagree with him. When he hears that France is in danger of falling to the Commies, Mr. Freedom heads overseas to set things right. When the welcome he receives isn’t quite as warm as he expected, he gives up hope of steering the French away from the Reds and decides to salvage what he can by destroying the entire country.
William Klein’s late 60’s flick “Mr. Freedom” is a satire on American culture. It’s a pretty good critique on America’s foreign policy. Mr. Freedom is a tall, flag waving patriotic style superhero. He wears a red, white and blue football uniform and is very racist, misogynist and an egomaniac. Kind of like the dumb high school jock, who picks on everyone. He is sent on a mission to stop the spread of communism in France. He must save people from his enemy, Red China man. In order to save France and force democracy on others, he literally rapes and destroys their country. Hmmmmm, isn’t there a small middle eastern country that we’ve been doing the same thing to?
Mr. Freedom has ridiculously bright patriotic colors and subversive humor galore. The costumes look like something from a drugged out 70’s children’s show. Many people may feel outraged at the films satirical elements. It’s a great laugh when living in these troubled times. Look for a cameo by Donald Pleasence of “Halloween”. And who can forget the Mr. Freedom theme song? (Hurray for freedom, for one and for all… It’s you and meet em and ten foot tall…) F-R-(double E)-D- D-O-M spells FREE-DOM and you’ll notice the film puts an emphasis on DOM(dumb).
