  • Discreetly eavesdropping on counseling sessions as clients divulge often heartbreaking personal details, the filmmakers eschew narration in favor of a more fragmented, naturalistic approach.

  • With intimate access and a sharp eye for small details and big ideas, it's an eye-opening documentary that deserves an audience...

  • Blowin' Up offers one of the most hopeful real-world visions of heroic women - from the judge and DAs to the attorneys, social workers, counselors and, not least, the defendants - ever to fill the screen.

    April 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The movie does have a verdict: It's time to change up the way we police, criminalize, and vilify sex workers without hearing their stories.

  • The characters are riveting and the photography is casually stylish, but the real highlight is the urgency of the work Wang-Breal captures.

  • I think it's rather shapeless... You don't really find out what these sessions accomplish.
