"Tonight, we must tell our children that, for African-American children and adults, freedom is not yet a reality in the United States."
Beyond all belief.
But it was real.
Cameras from all around caught every moment, from Rodney King's grotesquely brutal beating, to Rodney King's imploration for the riots in his name to finally cease, and every awful detail in between.
The climate that ignited those sparks of righteous, riotous fury - in the 60's, and the 90's, and beyond - is still a reality.
And the final minutes of this monumentally disturbing documentary - cross-cutting between two turbulent periods of history repeating each other almost entirely verbatim, beat for beat - show that society's next big explosion of destructive anger caused by great injustice is almost inevitable...
...a terrible time-bomb...
...ticking down ever closer to the next...big...bang.
