"Mississippi Burning" feels like a movie made from the inside out, a movie that knows the ways and people of its small Southern city so intimately that, having seen it, I know the place I'd go for a cup of coffee and the place I'd steer clear from.

Hackman delivers some of the best work of his career. And this guy's been doing it for 30 years.

Starts out as a vivid portrait of the Civil Rights era and ends up a cop drama in which vengeful anger is used against racist killers.

Slick, well-acted thriller that nonetheless distorts the facts and looks at the civil rights movement from a strictly white perspective
