Los Angles Times and Morning Edition film critic Kenneth Turan reviews the new docu-drama, Bloody Sunday. On January 30th, 1972, British troops opened fire on Irish Catholic civil rights marchers in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Turan says filmmaker Paul Greengrass puts his years of making real documentaries to good use in this dramatic recreation.
