Movie Info

Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two anarchists from Italy, become an unfortunate symbol of bigotry aimed at immigrants and dissenters in 1920s America. Accused of murder, the pair are convicted after a highly prejudicial and inflammatory trial, and are executed in 1927.

  • Nicola Sacco, Bartolomeo Vanzetti, and the incredible firestorm of outrage generated by their criminal trials have been largely neglected in recent years, but Peter Miller's absolutely engrossing documentary Sacco and Vanzetti brings it all back.

    May 17, 2007 | Rating: 3/4
  • The meat-and-potatoes style of Sacco and Vanzetti seems less a failure of imagination than a means of putting in the foreground its intriguing subject matter.

  • Miller, a New Yorker, uses archival footage, dramatized readings and talking heads, including Sacco's niece and a neighbor of Vanzetti's, to get his point across.

Audience Reviews for Sacco and Vanzetti

  • Jan 28, 2009
    A solid documentary about one of the worst miscarriages of justice in American history.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Sacco & Vanzetti" is an informative documentary about Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two immigrants and anarchists who were railroaded for a murder and robbery that happened near Boston in 1920 and executed in 1927.(Even though I heard of them, the particulars of the case were unfamiliar to me until now.) While borrowing too much from the Ken Burns school of documentary filmmaking(admittedly it does open it up a little but the music is definitely overkill), the documentary does an adequate job of linking their case to today via the immigrant issue and the war on terror. But regrettably it does not do the same with the death penalty and there is little information on anarchism as a philosophy. No matter how far we have come as a nation, it always seems like there is always more work to be done. [/font]
