    Only because it was based on a court transcript, and not a work of fiction. In an election year like 2008, this has my vote for the most essential film to see. Our country is approaching the degree of division portrayed in this view of 1968, and it becomes important for the citizenry to learn from past mistakes. This film presents history in a creative delivery (albeit, a one-sided view of history.) Nonetheless, for those who weren't alive when this all went down, such as the writer, I found it profoundly educational, and gut-wrenchingly terrifying at the same time. The saddest thing of all, is that this really HAPPENED. In 2008, it seems poised to happen again.
