The case of two Italian-born anarchists, executed for a murder they almost surely didn’t commit, remains the definitive, scary myth of the promise of America snuffed by fear and loathing. It’s cleansing to see the facts laid out with intimacy and rigor (the director is Ken Burns associate Peter Miller), and the film earns the comparison it makes to the squelching of due process for some of today’s terror suspects. The difference is that Americans during the ’20s took to the streets to protest the railroading of two innocent men. Would that happen now?
