Riveting and docudrama
22 January 2002 | by (Columbia, South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this on PBS Masterpiece Theater last night, and it is riveting. Although it is performed by professional actors, it has the look and feel of a documentary. This is largely due to the use of a hand held camera. It tells the story of a young black man in England who was murdered by a group of white hooligans. This was followed by a bungles police investigation, which led to the obviously guilty suspects going free. To this day, no one has been convicted in the crime. This docudrama shows that the USA does not have a monopoly on racism or on police incompetence.
