Critic Reviews for United in Anger: A History of ACT UP
As scrappy and passionate as the actions it documents, "United in Anger: A History of Act Up" delivers a living tribute to a movement spawned by death and despair.
A documentary that could have been a lot angrier but aims to educate rather than agitate.
Crucially, the variety of interviewees in Hubbard's doc-men and women of different races and classes-underscores just how diverse ACT UP was in its heyday.
Que o ACT UP foi essencial ao desmistificar a AIDS e melhorar as condições de suas vítimas é algo inquestionável. Mas Unidos pela Raiva não precisava repetir isso por 90 minutos para provar o argumento.
This story deserves more than a merely functional telling, which is really all it manages here.
A telling reminder of just how effective civil disobedience still can be when you tap into a forbidden emotion to unleash the requisite righteous rage needed to challenge an intransigent authority in collective and constructive fashion.
Audience Reviews for United in Anger: A History of ACT UP
There is no doubt that ACT UP played a major role in the fight against the AIDS pandemic, but this documentary lacks a clear structure and proves to be quite repetitious, showing too many interviews of people saying the same thing - which becomes tiring really fast.More
