Movie Info

The Revisionaries showcases how public education has become the latest battleground in a new wave of cultural, religious and ideological clashes, with local Texas education board members advancing agendas of Creationism and other religious issues in public schools. This documentary highlights how their tactics have had the effect of rewriting key tenets of U.S. democracy and are affecting educational policies at the national level - for generations to come. -- (C) Kino Lorber

Really a well-made dispatch from a long war.

Thurman presents a largely even-handed recounting, wisely letting folks - and events - speak for themselves.

Of all the scary movies you may see this month, none will be more chilling than Scott Thurman's documentary about the Texas State Board of Education.

Top Critic

Such a feature-length bludgeoning, even in the service of basic social and scientific literacy, is truly discomfiting.

Time Out
Top Critic

Offers a balanced view of the fight over science and U.S. history standards for Texas schools, but lacks the punch it might have achieved with a stronger point of view.

Audience Reviews for The Revisionaries

One of the few time when a one-sided perspective was warranted. The constant need we have as a society to always be arguing between ignorance and basic facts is beyond my comprehension.
