…but if Killers of the Flower Moon had resorted to the same dishonest-but-effective Hollywood tactics that Alan Parker’s Mississippi Burning deployed (depicting Tom White in roughly the same fashion as Gene Hackman’s charismatic FBI tough guy, well-crafted villain performances, sprinklings of historical bullshit, an emotionally satisfying resolution)…

If Team Killers had adopted an old-fashioned Alan Parker-like approach it wouldn’t have been as virtuous, but the popcorn crowd would have enjoyed it more.

I’ll never watch Killers again (twice was enough) but I could watch Mississippi Burning any day of the week.

White’s FBI team weren’t “saviors”, but they sure as hell busted WilliamKing” Hale and Ernest Burkhart.
