The movie gets what made the civil rights movement such a seismic success: clashing titans — on the movement’s front lines, in the White House, and in the governor’s mansion. The stakes in Selma feel astronomical, and you feel the pressure and force — the dynamics — exerted between participants on each side.

What does a Martin Luther King, Jr. film need to be about, and what should it make us think and feel? And alongside these concerns, what does it mean to viewers today to see a living, breathing, thinking, moving image of King up there on the screen? DuVernay so smartly and successfully answers all of these questions with Selma that one feels an almost constant sense of relieved exhilaration while watching it.
