Critic Reviews for Birth Of The Living Dead
Mr. Romero, manifesting a self-effacing demeanor and sensible humanity, is a most agreeable raconteur.
Kuhns makes time for political insights, provocative montages of race riots cut with the movie's hick militia, and the comments of owlish Romero himself, who recounts the shoot like the enthusiastic 27-year-old he was.
What distinguishes this doc from much of the tedious critical prose Romero has inspired is the fan-boy and fan-girl ardor that fuels its smarts - both behind and in front of the camera.
Audience Reviews for Birth Of The Living Dead
A decent enough documentary about Night Of The Living Dead. It covers a fair amount about how the film came to be, how it was sold, and how the movie broke barriers in a racially divided nation. I think it could have gone into greater detail on some things and it would have been nice to have interviewed some more famous people/people involved in the making of the film. The only people I recognized were George A. Romero and Gale Anne Hurd. Did they even try to interview Judith O'Dea (Barbara)?
This on was very much on point giving great overview about Night of the Living and Dead and history behind.
The backstory behind the creation and popularity of George A. Romero's groundbreaking cult hit Night of the Living Dead is explored in the documentary Birth of the Living Dead. The film looks at Romero's early career in commercials and at how he came up with the idea behind Night of the Living Dead. His guerrilla filmmaking style is also discussed, along with how he marketed the film in order to get it distributed in grindhouse theatres. And, historians and other experts look at the counterculture movement of the late '60s and at how it influenced Romero's work. Additional, the film reviews Night of the Living Dead's cinematic journey, from drive-in theatres to European art houses to the public domain, and how it continually increased in popularity and won over audiences and critics alike. Extraordinarily informative and comprehensive, Birth of the Living Dead is the definitive word on Romero's seminal zombie classic.
