What she and her father and husband have drawn from this material is a combustible amalgam: a movie about justice violated, rectified, and denied.

A careful, thoughtful documentary that meticulously re-creates what happened on that night and details how and why everything went so terribly off-course.

A skillfully told and important story, though less factual blow-by-blow and more time spent with the five would have been more compelling.

Even as "The Central Park Five" seeks satisfactory answers, it stirs outrage and discouragement all over again.

A passionate and even radical case for racial justice coming from Ken Burns, all the remarkably so given his "feel good" aesthetic so resonant of Steven Spielberg's narrative films.

It's still chilling to see how easily "The Central Park Five" evokes those mad days of urban distrust.

In addition to recent interviews with the five, the filmmakers deftly marshal news footage, clips from the supposed confessions, and trenchant analysis.

Measured in tone and outraged in its argument, it is an emotionally stirring, at times crushingly depressing cinematic call to witness.

It never expands its scope or meaning over the course of its two-hour running time. But the specifics make the story powerful regardless.

"The Central Park Five" ultimately fails to make its case that five teenagers were sent to jail for a crime they didn't commit solely because of institutional racism.

Though relentlessly and admirably logical, the movie constantly glosses over the buried human element.

Sparks intense feelings and re-arouses others suppressed for two decades about racism, official irresponsibility, and the principle of presumed innocence as against presumed guilt.
