Sounds | Charley Crockett - Killers Of The Flower Moon

Wanneer ene T-Bone Burnett je partner in crime wordt, dan weet je dat het gene kak is wat je doet. Crockett levert hier in zijn eigen onnavolgbare stijl een ferme barnstomper af. Het verhaal erachter is dat van de Osage moorden uit de jaren '20 van de vorige eeuw. Naar een boek van David Grann en verfilmd door Martin Scorsese (trailer).


Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI is about the Osage Reign of Terror—the 1920s organized killings of members of the oil-rich Osage Indians. Powerful and bigoted whites systematically exploited and murdered the Osage people to expropriate their wealth, showing us the horrors that result when racism and greed align. The murders were also a major catalyst for the growth of the FBI, and the triumph of its rational and scientific vision of law enforcement—and a shift away from the era of frontier justice, corrupt and incompetent local sheriffs, and rogue “lawmen.”
