I'm glad I watched Selma, because I was only vaguely aware of this significant march and the events surrounding it. But I didn't think it was that great a movie. I would have preferred a documentary. This had a biopic feel, and I never like biopics (exception: Before Night Falls). There is always something forced about them as they try to dramatize events and relationships to give a movie-like experience. The story itself is incredible, I just would have rather have watched a documentary about it.
