In January 1973, four young African-American Muslim men held up a Brooklyn sporting goods store for firearms-and the police response resulted in crossfire, a dead patrolman, 11 hostages, and a 47-hour standoff. Psychology-trained traffic cop Harvey Schlossberg got unprecedented leeway to sweat out a resolution and surrender without further bloodshed, and the incident receives a compelling chronicle here, with testimony from surviving officers, captives, and perpetrators. 93 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
