Burden

There’s a clear desire to dig into the complexities of prejudice in Burden, written and directed by Andrew Heckler and based on the true story of Mike Burden. The ambition throughout is admirable, though the execution wavers a bit in spots. Garrett Hedlund stars as the titular character, a Ku Klux Klansman living in South Carolina. He puts in work as a repo man for Tom Griffin (Tom Wilkinson), a KKK leader and supremely evil person. Mike’s doing his best to come back from years of military service overseas, mumbling through his sentences and walking with a handful of limps and ticks. It’s a whole lot of performance from Hedlund, whose choices stay consistent and ultimately build themselves into the narrative.

When Mike finds love in single mother Judy (Andrea Riseborough, always impressive and stealing scenes), he’s forced to question the lived-in racism that’s informed him most of his life. Griffin–a father figure to Mike–is constructing a KKK museum in the center of town, much to the dismay of Reverend Kennedy (Forest Whitaker), who leads a passionate congregation driven to protest. Heckler, a former actor, makes his directorial debut with the film and appears determined to stuff everything he can into the project. To this end, it is all quite impressive. There is nothing easy about this and Heckler exudes a remarkable confidence in telling it like he does. Mike Burden is a hard person to tolerate, let alone enjoy watching for over two hours. That Heckler and Hedlund pull no punches in digging into the evils of this man speaks to their agenda.
