  • There's a reason why Ava DuVernay's film is called Selma and not King. Like Spielberg's Lincoln, Selma is as much about the procedures of political maneuvering, in-fighting and bargaining as it is about the chief orchestrator of the resulting deals. Selma affords Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the same human characteristics of humor, frustration and exhaustion that Lincoln provided its President. This relatable humanity elevates Kings actions and his efforts. It inspires by suggesting that the reverence for Dr. King was bestowed on a person no different than any of us. If he can provoke change, we have no excuse not to as well. Edit
