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.

An alarming, hilarious documentary ...

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

Time Out New York
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.

Scott Thurman's new film The Revisionaries is a postcard from the frontline of America's culture wars.

Paste Magazine

Due to redistricting, every position on the Texas State Board of Education is up for election on the November 2012 ballot. See The Revisionaries and become better informed about the subject, and then remember to cast your vote.

Austin Chronicle

Scott Thurman captures not only the fear and anti-intellectual resentment and insecurity that govern the dictations of the far right, but also the rampant unchecked egotism.

Slant Magazine

At once an unsettling documentary and an enlightening one.

Full Review… | October 4, 2012
One Guy's Opinion

This doc's look at the avid Texas State Board of Education (led by a smalltown dentist), invested in rewriting school textbooks in order to push ultra-right wing agendas, is a disturbing must-see.

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.
