Critic Reviews for Baltimore Rising

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

  • The imagery is vivid and moving. But the film misses the mark with its aimless narrative.

    Nov 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • ... the documentary by Sonja Sohn and Mark Levin that covers the event in a manner nobody has quite done before.
