Mississippi Burning
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3 Stars
Mississippi Burning Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Jessica
Rating: R Year: 1988 Category: Drama
Director: Alan Parker Time: 128 min. Writer: Chris Gerelmo

Mine: Powerful and very well done.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two FBI agents--one a tight-jawed, by-the-book type, the other an experienced Southern lawman who knows how to handle people--head the government investigation into the disappearance of three civil rights workers in Mississippi during the summer of 1964. Vivid recreation of the period and setting helps carry a less-than-perfect script (inspired by real-life events); Hackman gives a dynamic performance as the former small-town sheriff who figures out how to crack the case. Peter Biziou's cinematography won an Oscar.
