    Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992

    ★★★

    3-out-of-4: I'm entertained.

    Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992 is a documentary.

    The documentary is about the racism, systemic and otherwise, that led to the 1992 LA riots. It explains how the riots weren't directly caused by the police brutality that Rodney King endured, or the fallout from the Latasha Harlins trial. Instead, the frustration from these events heated up the already simmering region and caused things to finally boil over.

    ★★½

    I love trippy mind-benders and unreliable narrators, and this had a teensy-bit of the former and a lot of the latter.

    So you'd think I loved this movie, and to a point I actually kind of did. And then the ending happened. Ugh. I don't think I've ever gotten so into a movie and then walked away thinking "what a bummer."

    Anyway, the movie starts with a guy waking up in the hospital. He's just endured some trauma that he…
