It's a remarkable commentary on overlapping media, and an immersive history of the moment.

Top Critic

An immersive, you-are-there experience that is as dramatic (or more so) as any Hollywood feature film.

A taut and commanding primer.

Thanks in part to excellent editing and a subtly gripping score by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, the doc never lags during its nearly two-hour running time.

Gives a full sense of the anarchy and rage of the post-King verdict days, thrusting us fully and disturbingly into events in very much of a You Are There manner.

A city's pain gets silenced in order to create a feeling of rising tension - rather than people, everyone in LA 92 is a drop of water in a pot ready to boil.
