Critic Reviews for Burn, Motherf*cker, Burn!

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

  • Documentaries about 1992 are about re-examining the extant archive of material about King. They are also about trying to re-assert the power of videotaped truth, 25 years after realizing its surprising, galling, and definitively maddening limits.

  • Blatant and unflinching, the documentary depicts a world that is neither well-balanced nor fair.

  • [Sacha] Jenkins' project feels less like an opportunistic grab at a controversial topic, and more like a case study in the source of the waves that keep crashing over America.

  • The film's main virtue is the clarity with which it lays out the cause and effect relationships.

  • Burn is filled with amazing and often cleverly chosen footage, including an interview with singer Barry White on Dinah Shore's 1970s daytime talk show in which he talks about his participation in the Watts riots.
