For a movie about a groundbreaking gay rebellion, Stonewall Uprising plays it much too straight.
It comes alive through the memories of those who were there.
On the one hand, Stonewall Uprising shows how far we've come toward enlightenment and tolerance since that hot June night. On the other, it reminds us that there are still many minds to change and rights to win.
Pplaces the incident within the context of the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s with PBS-caliber tact and compassion.
Stonewall Uprising is an important documentary -- and a passionate and compassionate reconstruction of the historic standoff between police and pubcrawlers.
Fascinating doc provides the story of this pivotal moment in gay rights.
Among the year's best non-fiction features.
At moments it transcends its sometimes fuzzy construction and the spark that ignited a revolution becomes tremendously palpable and galvanizing.
Includes frank recollections and startling clips from vintage news reports, including 'The Homosexuals,' a 1967 CBS special narrated by Dan Rather that characterized homosexuality as 'a mental illness that has reached epidemiological proportions.'
Excellent source of information for those who know little of this monumental occurrence, but for those with no need for a Stonewall riots 101, it has little to offer.
More than half of the documentary isn't about Stonewall at all, which makes for a frustrating 49-minute wait until the uprising begins to rise up.
Riveting -- and important -- stuff.
Most of it is familiar territory, but its nice to hear people who were there retell their story about what it was like rather than just a bunch of historians discussing its significance. We know it was the turning point, but to listen to gay men and women describe how and why they were pushed to the breaking point is pretty interesting.
