'Oklahoma City'

The bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995 was not just the biggest act of domestic terrorism in the U.S. to date – it was also the culmination of fringe anti-government sentiments that had moved from actively threatening the Feds to acting out. Like O.J.: Made in America, Barak Goodman's look at the tragedy goes to great lengths to contextualize what happened and why; by the time Timothy McVeigh finally comes on the scene right before the halfway point, you completely understand how and why he felt compelled to such grand-scale violence. And given the doc's emphasis on the growing American militia/alt-right movement, this could not be timelier.
