Critic Reviews for 9500 Liberty

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

9500 Liberty is not just about the clash of immigrant Hispanics and white nativists, but about what happens when a community's civic machinery is hijacked by ideologues and extremists -- and what exactly it takes for the silent center to push back.

A compelling glimpse of a community and, by extension, a country, in the throes of change.

July 8, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The movie is such a polemic in favor of open immigration and such an attempt to demonize (through strategic cutting) the anti-immigration forces that it plays more like a propaganda piece.

This engrossing documentary traces ugly repercussions in northern Virginia when a resolution is passed requiring cops to question anyone they have "probable cause" to suspect of being an illegal alien, a la Arizona's subsequent hot-button law.
