13th ★★★★½

The format of this was pretty great - explaining the loophole in the 13th amendment, and then explaining the horrific and deliberate consequences that followed. 

I thought it was great that so many different voices were used to explain so many aspects of the phenomenon. Some of the footage was amazing - the tall guy in suit in what I think is the fifties getting chased, punched and abused. The courage of that individual was almost unimaginable, and yet tragic that he should have to demonstrate that to just live a life. 

I though the cool, forensic way it laid things out was by turns impressive, depressing and because this film exists, hopeful.
