And yet there are moments in Let It Fall that feel like a significant reframing of the riots, both in terms of what actually happened and in terms of who's really to blame.
[Let it Fall] accomplishes what straightforward nonfiction narrative can do in the best of circumstance.
What makes the astoundingly edited "Let It Fall" so powerful is that it's an oral history, told through many angles: residents, police officers, victims, families of the victims, witnesses, jurors and a host of others.
Not wasting a minute of its two-and-a-half-hour running time, this remarkable documentary echoes O.J: Made in America by examining the Los Angeles riots.
Laying a groundwork of personal testimony and archival assemblage that tells the story of what Ridley calls "the uprising," there's directness when needed, detail (often horrific) when appropriate, and complexity where least expected.
Teeming with acts both heroic and reprehensible, John Ridley's wrenchingly humane documentary, "Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992," reveals the Los Angeles riots as the almost inevitable culmination of a decade of heightening racial tensions.
