Neshoba is a troubling documentary, a film about fiery passions and murderous deeds that is disturbing in ways that go beyond what might be expected.
This film is a document of hope, progress and idealism but also a reminder that the deep springs of bigotry and violence that fed a long, vicious campaign of domestic terrorism have not dried up.
For the most part, Neshoba is content to treat progress as a matter of reconciling with the past rather than dealing with the present.
Some questions, this compelling movie reminds us, still require answers.
Though Neshoba is standard-issue in terms of craftsmanship, the tools used to tell the tale (newsreels, family photos, crime scene and autopsy photos) are masterfully employed.
This gripping documentary forces you to revisit an especially ugly chapter in American history, and question whether it is over and done with -- or not.
'Neshoba' is a timeless reminder there are still many in this country believing some American citizens deserve second-class status and therefore we must look to the cameras and courts for justice.
Though the film gets carried away by its black-and-white-together-we-shall-overcome vibe, the raw facts are undeniably where the real emotion lies.
A misguided edit shortchanges audiences of what could have been a doc that capitalized on its exclusive sit-downs and reportage.
Provocative, well-balanced, unflinchingly honest and profoundly moving with just the right amount of comic relief and non-preachy, inspirational messages.
Cogently and movingly provides fresh perspective on history while the screen splits with interviews that bring out mixed feelings for reconciliation vs. forgetting the past.
Excellent documentary corrective to Mississippi Burning-type melodramas.
