Led by two fine lead performances, Brother to Brother is a moving and thought-provoking dramatization of the Harlem Renaissance.

... it is more than welcome, full of generous quotations and ancestor worship-a memory book, a bildungsroman, and practically a palimpsest, with the past written over but not at all erased, still signifying.
Evans's admirable desire to introduce a misunderstood era's legacy to a wider public helps to excuse the film's occasional clunky dialogue and narrative longueurs.
Takes on a plethora of phobias. Homophobia, racial prejudice and age discrimination are among its targets, and it hits them squarely and fairly.
An uneven but provocative drama.
A very good drama about the difficulties of being young, black, and gay. With a bigger budget and a sharper focus, it might have been a great one.
Works far better as an idea than its execution.
A refreshingly-honest empowerment flick set against an historical examination of African-American homosexuality.
Writer/director Rodney Evans has tackled a lot here, too much really
Quiet, thought-provoking...Robinson's portrait is joyously dignified, poetic and earthy.
satisfying original journey that is well worth checking out for its sincerity and refreshing honesty
Although its reach exceeds its grasp, Rodney Evans' picture deserves points for its ambition and many elements of its craftsmanship.
The story is a little uneven, but Anthony Mackie and Roger Robinson make it worth a look.
A friend's recommendation reminded me that I saw this stunning documentary-style-film on PBS's Independent Lens.
The literary world of the Harlem Renaissance is more central to this than homosexuality amongst African American men (see Paris is Burning for the best film on that topic). It's admirable unabashed reality and as result, quite depressing at moments with an overall tone of bittersweetness.
I think this is a very important film for young artists, especially writers, to see.
