Do I dare, do I dare, do I dare?

William Kunstler: Disturbing The Universe – 9.5/10. I regret taking so long to write about this, because it's one of the best movies I've ever seen, and I had a lot to say about that. It's directed by the daughters of a famous civil rights-era lawyer who suddenly began defending less defensible clients, and it's from the perspective of the daughters trying to figure out what changed their father and it all builds into this incredible, incredible climax where he, dead, manages to sum up his entire life and make sense of most everything he's ever done in a public square, and makes you feel bad for not being as brave and makes you feel stupid for not realizing what bravery really is.
