Good film - Not a rehash
2 April 2016 | by billsoccerSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this very much. It gave details about the search for Ray which I'd not known before. Now living in Memphis, I was surprised at how well the local police department and even the FBI did (or at least was portrayed). Starting with the quick location of the suspected gun (what an idiot Ray was - to have just dropped it in public!), which led to the identification of the Mustang and the boarding house where he stayed, which led directly to his identification and capture. Without those mistakes - what conspiracy stories we'd still be living with one can only imagine. Speaking of conspiracy stories, the investigator/author Posner was convincing in his refutation by Ray defenders of the view that Ray wasn't a racist.Less so, but still attractive, was his refutation of the conspiracy that Ray left with us - that he didn't pull the trigger and was funded by 'others' - a story that Posner thinks fooled the remaining King clan.
