“The Trial of the Chicago 7”


“Chicago 7” is a riveting, sometimes absurdist film about how justice can be perverted, and a classic Aaron Sorkin-esque interweavi­ng of dialogue and politics. We wish they’d shot a second movie simultaneo­usly about Black Panther Bobby Seale’s courtroom experience. He’s present but stuck in jail (and eventually bound and gagged), which means his incredible story goes sadly unfleshed out. That’s the film we’re hoping Sorkin — or someone — makes next.
