The film is impassioned and powerful but not frenzied, riling the viewers' emotions without giving in to them itself.
| Original Score: A-
Stirring, heartbreaking and thoroughly infuriating ...
| Original Score: 3/4
Both Senyonjo and Kato light up the screen.
| Original Score: 4/5
This alternately harrowing and inspirational doc puts a human face on the fight for gay rights in Uganda.
Horrific and uplifting ...
I'll be surprised if any other movie this year affects me as much.
A scary but inspiring film with real heroes and villains.
| Original Score: 5/5
The very best - and, alas, the very worst - of human nature is captured in this heartbreaking and inspiring documentary from Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall.
Apart from its laudable goal of raising awareness, the film doesn't have much to offer.
| Original Score: C+
Equally gut-wrenching and inspiring, the documentary Call Me Kuchu beams right from Uganda, the global hypocenter in the ongoing and intensifying struggle over LGBT rights.
It's far too soon for a happy ending, but in praising Kato's bravery, Call Me Kuchu at least points to the potential for one.
While a local filmmaker's perspective may have brought more dimensions, the coverage of events here is impressive and on the mark.
[A] shocking, moving, enthralling and enraging doc ...
