No God No Master does for New York in the teens what Midnight in Paris did for France in the 20s, but with more dignity and less “whimsy.” While the film is essentially a TV movie about the conflicts surrounding the “Palmer Raids” of late 1919/early 1920, writer/director Terry Green has tapped this period to build an urban western and an allegory for our modern war on terror.
