Riotsville, USA ★★½

Impressive researched and the option to limit its material to military and mainstream media sources gives it some power. It is a counternarrative about consensus formation to justify the militarization of police that feel like it might be more pointed a couple decades ago, in 2022 it plays like a thesis movie that did great homework. I might like this better if it wasn't so careful limited to past, it is good at observing how a narrative take shape and suggest some what if scenario, but it also keep it very separated from the ways this same law and order justification keeps getting sustained by mainstream media today.
