  1. A must-see account that casts a harshly illuminating light on a key period of recent American history.
  2. Gathers riveting, rarely seen news clips from the era into a chronology that plays like a suspenseful police drama.
  3. 90
    The story goes on and on, endlessly fascinating to the last - the sensational trial, the convictions, the revelations, the recriminations.
  4. 75
    An insightful time capsule.
  5. 70
    A remarkably clear-eyed look back at a moment in which real revolution seemed possible - even probable - in America's streets.
  6. Reviewed by: Philip Kennicott
    30
    Stone's film is a case study in cultural analysis that aims at too much and achieves too little.
