    SHOW ME A HERO: Excellent! BUY! SEE! Saw on HBO...

    "SHOW ME A HERO": This movie (6 hours) was EXCELLENT! NEVER BORING! Moves VERY FAST! I saw this on HBO from end of August 2015 into September 2015, on Sunday nights. It was in 6 parts, 2 parts every week (each part 1 hour) , 2 hours each week, for 3 weeks. I especially loved the last 2 parts, Parts 5 and 6. I watched those 2 parts: 9 times throughout the week or so when shown. The Director won for the Oscar winning-Academy award for best picture "CRASH". I called HBO who told me that it'd be out on video in 6 months. Sure enough! (*I called and left message, and lo-and-behold, they called me back the NEXT DAY less than 12 hours later! Now THATS customer service! Bravo HBO! Everybody back HBO!). SEE THIS MOVIE! It's a true story, from late 1980s -circa 1988- to mid-1990s, circa 1995, regarding black and hispanic housing being built in a white neighborhood in Yonkers, New York (Westchester county) , forced by court order to build. And how whites did not want it, and all the turmoil which followed in its aftermath. The actors and actresses portraying the real people, LOOK EXACTLY like the actual people! At the end during titles, real ones shown. If you are interested in history, true stories, and race relations, then you have to see this movie. I cannot wait to buy! Excellent, acting, excellent directing, excellent writing, excellent editing. Hence, EXCELLENT! LOL.

    A very good mini-series with excellent acting and direction. Oscar Isaac becomes Nick Wacisko and holds your attention in every scene he is in.

    Fascinating bit of recent history. Shows how the political system works, and also doesn't work. Well acted.
