Critic Reviews for The Best of Enemies
It's predictable and conventional, but it has some powerful moments.
But like Peter Farrelly's road-trip dramedy, Bissell's film stretches and flattens history in ways big and small.
Comparisons will inevitably be made to Green Book for its upbeat vibe, but in terms of serious craft and admirable aspirations, this film is more in the league of 42 and Selma.
It's impossible to ignore that the film is yet another Hollywood narrative of racial reconciliation centered on a white protagonist-and worse, it's one that seems much more interested in the Klan's white targets than its black ones.
The film travels such an obvious path and falls into such a predictable rhythm, it doesn't quite carry the emotional resonance such a powerful true-life story should convey.
