Alabama Burning
24 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Powerful and moving. The struggle between father and son, right and wrong and the definition of true and lasting friendship are the catalysts of this compelling film. Ving Rhames is phenomenal (as always). Tom Sizemore portrays a son who, as a child, witnessed the racially motivated terroristic acts of his father. He is torn by the bond that should exist between a father and son and that thin line of loyalty he feels is owed, even though he knows it is wrong. Ving Rhames portrays Sizemore's best friend. He literally steals the show with his powerful on screen presence. The subtle exchanges as these two men, one who knows what his father has done, and the other who knows he knows, are riveting and truly thought provoking. Justice, in the end, brings us some sense of closure and joy, but they are tainted by the years of silent secrets that came before.
