With empathetic craftsmanship, the film unspools as a brief history of hatred that may be recognizable to anyone who lived through the 20th century or has been paying attention in the 21st.
"Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story" doesn't flinch from asking tough questions...
A kind of excavation and investigation of Mr. Wright's actions as a piece of civil rights history.
Rediscovered historical footage plants the seed for a moving, beautifully crafted Civil Rights doc.
"Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story" is in equal measure a look at two families, the ongoing legacy of America's recent past and an essay on one man's moment of transformative courage.
It's a powerful testament to how far we both have and haven't come.
"Booker's Place" will open both eyes and all your senses.
The film tells a story of another America which seems most primitive, foreign and far away now, but it was really not all that long ago in old segregated, Jim Crow Mississippi.
A heart-felt movie that gives you a good idea of how backward a state is Mississippi.
An interesting and entertaining if often sad documentary inspired by a 1966 NBC special, 'Mississippi: A Self Portrait,' that brought trouble to one of its participants, a popular waiter at a 'whites-only' restaurant.
... [Booker Wright's interview] becomes a window into the life not only of one man, but of a whole culture that, one hopes, lies mostly in America's past.
Clarity is a forte for a documentary. Director Raymond De Felitta has captured a time and place, both past and present, but one wishes he had pushed a bit more for truth.
A filmmaker investigates the background and eventual fate of a black waiter who gave an incendiary speech in his father's documentary about racism in Mississippi in the 1960s. A moving and vivid examination of the black experience in Jim Crow's south.
