An achievement every bit the equal of his Killer of Sheep, Burnett’s unsettling, slow-burn To Sleep with Anger cracks open the treasury of African-American folklore to create a sinister, career-best role for Danny Glover, an unwelcome guest from back home who darkens the doorstep of a transplanted Southern black family now living in South Central Los Angeles, bringing with him a sly grin and unwelcome memories.
