Critic Reviews for Being Blacker

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • The best documentaries give a slice of other lives, lived both well and badly, which, in the right hands, can linger in your head for months. These were the best hands.

  • What emerges is a sensitive portrait of a man at a difficult crossroads in his life. There's an immediate crisis involving a run-in with the law. But there are more lingering ghosts to do with migration, separation, integration and identity.

  • This wasn't a perfect documentary, but it managed to raise issues without lecturing.

  • Dineen's receptive but gently interrogative style was the key to a portrait that told many quiet truths about life in contemporary Britain for the black community.

    March 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a big, beautiful sprawl of a film, that spans continents as well as generations.

    Sam Wollaston

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • Tender and loving and sharp and engrossing and somehow unpicked not just a life but also what it's like to be black in Britain today without ever getting in your face.
