All Critics (20) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (1)

  • Coates' writing packs clarity into its lyricism, and at just shy of an hour and 20 minutes Forbes' film honors the book's relative economy while enriching every frame with poignance, augmented by Bradford Young's arresting cinematography.

  • The film doesn't offer the most incisive social commentary, but as a document of our contemporary political moment, its force is undeniable.

    November 21, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Old news footage transitions to recent outrages; dreams are shattered and reassembled to reflect unflinching truths. There's as much to look at as there is to hear; the words and images meld almost seamlessly.

  • When it fires on all cylinders, this is a very effective, powerful companion piece to its source.

    November 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The performances here are rapturous, yes, but they are performed by faces that feel very distant from the realities that they speak about.

  • A gorgeously sorrowful prose poem about being Black in America, then and now. It hits you in your head but mostly your heart.
