    The movie tells this story in a traditional, straightforward way. No fancy footwork. No chewing the scenery. Meat and potatoes, you could say, but it's thoughtful and moving.
  2. May not be great cinema, but it nonetheless deserves attention.
  3. “Blood” may carry us into the past, but the unhappy effects linger today, like pollution darkening a sky that never turned completely blue.

    Draws attention to a little-known chapter in the history of the civil-rights movement, but it doesn’t do much to pull that moment into the present, or to pull the audience into the past.
  5. The actors do a lot to dimensionalize the material. Parker's Chavis is especially sharp, creating a man with a subtly burning fuse.
