I found this style engrossing because you can see the gears turn in these people's heads as they try to remember these girls fondly and also the tragic events that took their lives.

Whether it be the parents, friends or people who lived in the community, all of their stories were compelling needed to be heard.

Be that as it may, Spike Lee put together a moving ad compelling tribute to four innocents.

It was both tough and fascinating to watch the former governor make excuses for his earlier actions, and doing so by talking about what he did for black students while he was governor.

It has been well documented by a select few directors that reality is infinitely more compelling than fiction.

However, it is these difficult questions that often spark the most intense and valuable discussions.

The movie is quite intense because the memories of the people most intimately involved have not faded in 38 years.

Thanks to Spike Lee for telling this story in such a compelling manner.

Lee leaves this possibility open to intense scrutiny and supposition.
