  • Even when the epidemic of violence touches a beloved character, Ness' careful quilting of compassion and action across her years of filming suggests a fight that won't diminish for these citizens.

    October 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film captures up close the way violence transforms neighborhoods and families with an immediacy that transcends headlines or sensationalism.

    October 16, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Despite its dreary outlook, the film does offer a semblance of hope in the generosity, good humor and tenacious sang-froid of the people it portrays.

    April 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It all adds up to an even-handed issue film featuring those who are working to change the face of one of the U.S.'s most violent cities.

    April 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Charm City is not only a superb and moving work of non-fiction filmmaking, it is also one of those socially conscious and totally righteous documentaries with the power to help spur reform.
