Surprised about the negative response/reviews, to this powerful performance. Roger Guenveur Smith delivers a harrowing and most passionate performance of the events surrounding the life, beating and aftermath of Rodney King.

It is raw. It is uncomfortable in it's emotion. But it's also a tour de force.

If you are interested in that era, those events, and the man himself, this is a must watch.
