Shy of masterful
15 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though absolutely correct and valid, I was expecting a preachy diatribe of race relations and political correctness. I expected to be preached to and I would be the choir.

But it was an engrossing and entertaining document of a man's life with the backdrop of early 20th century history. Although long, it never felt boring.

Less is more and was perfectly staged.

I'm on the fence with Fishburn's performance. Easily an 8 out of 10. I think a little push with nuance would have pushed it to a 9. But anyone who takes on this role and does what he did deserves praise.

(I was surprised that they left in when he addressed the latecomers to the audience. But it worked well.)
