This study of racial hatred in the deep South of America stirred up a hornet's nest of controversy, but gained six nominations and an Oscar. Despite its commercial context it remains a powerful thriller full of good intentions, and few mainstream directors would dare even to try and bring such a flammable subject to the screen.
