Audience Reviews for Crown Heights

  • Dec 15, 2017
    It loses steam by the time it gets around to the investigation and exoneration portion of the movie. The reason is that this shift in the narrative forces the filmmakers to abandon their far more moving examination of the slow, agonizing way the criminal justice system and prison dehumanizes those trapped within them.
