Critic Reviews for Call + Response
How much impact Call + Response will have is anyone's guess. But when you see a 4-year-old sex slave, ignoring this crisis is no longer an option.
All in all, Call + Response makes alarmingly clear how ugly, pervasive and out-in-the-open the trade in humans for sex or labor often is, from the expected places -- Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia -- to our own backyard.
It's a documentary with its heart and its outrage in the right place.
Commendable if not compelling.
Laced with the potent music of a dozen bands and solo artists, Call Response is an urgent call to arms in the war against modern slavery.
Audience Reviews for Call + Response
This documentary was amazing, but I prefered the music from Cold War Kids, they just so happen to be one of my favorite bands! but the message that this documentary expresses is that even during the 21st century, slavery is still alive and with over 27 million people in bondage around the world, this collection of musicians--including Cold War Kids, Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Matisyahu, and Talib Kweli,gather together to make a stand for what is right. Even actress Ashley Judd talks about how bad slavery is, but I will admit, Cold War Kids' performance was the best!
After seeing the film, all I can do is spread the word about how horrible this issue of modern slavery is. This film was incredibly well done through the combination of real life stories, interesting and insightful interviews, and incredible music. I can not take this issue off of my heart until things start to change. Go see it. It will change your heart too.
This movie was inspiring and heart-wrenching. With the combination of amazing music and genuine stories about vulnerable victims who are in dyer need of attention and help, I have been able to spread the word of this horrible social injustice. I recommend that everyone go and see the film because once you know about the situation, you will never forget it.
