Excellent movie

Thought this was very well done. Hard to believe this goes on but it does. One thing this topic needs is a hell of a lot more publicity.

Failing systems

Based on the true story of Colin Warner who was wrongfully convicted of murder and spent more than 20 years in jail and his friend Carl King who devoted himself to prove Colin's innocence Crown Heights is a powerful film that shows how the system fails the people who need it the most. Having experience with making documentaries Matt Ruskin knows how to not make the actors be melodramatic and yet succeeds to make the viewers on the verge of tears. Lakeith Stanfield is excellent as Colin portraying the teenage confusion to the matured man. The focus of the film is mostly given to the failing judiciary and how it affects the people. There have been films dealing with such subjects before but the significance of such films has not diminished, these type of subjects are needed from time to time as a reminder about the world we live in.

Justice ... served (?)

No pun intended with the summary line, but I reckon you'll understand what I am aiming for with it. I had no idea what this would be about, but it becomes evident quite early one where this is heading. Of course some may even be aware of the real life occurance of this ... but even if you don't know about it, I am fairly certain you will be able to guess.

The justice system is so weak - or at least easy to manipulate! Even by really bad prosecutions! Being right and being treated right are two different shoes. Unfortunately even without having commited a crime, some people are likely to be punished for ... being different! A powerful movie, that is also quite harrowing. Not for everyone for many reasons! Either because it isn't entertainemnt you'll be served here or because you may feel differently than what the movie is telling you. The latter would not be a moral stand point I would agree with you on.

All that aside, amazing performances and a really tough prison drama ... with straining effects to everyone involved ...
