There are many such moments of human frailty and humor in Baltimore Rising, and Sohn presents all of it without specific judgment or an agenda beyond capturing as many voices as possible and corralling them as efficiently as possible.
Baltimore Rising shows a city working to find ways to make sure that work benefits all its citizens.
Excellent you-are-there film that takes viewers -- and Baltimore -- from despair to hope.
Sohn proves an extremely able documentarian, inserting herself among participants on all sides of the debate, from the police to activists and beyond.
The imagery is vivid and moving. But the film misses the mark with its aimless narrative.
... the documentary by Sonja Sohn and Mark Levin that covers the event in a manner nobody has quite done before.
The film resonates, teaches, provokes and speaks to the viewer in a way that allows you to get a deeper sense of who the people of Baltimore are and why their actions are so important.
That kind of finely honed opening, introducing and previewing what's to come in the full production like an overture in a Broadway musical, is documentary filmmaking at its best.
