All Critics (15) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (1)

  • The film moves with riveting momentum.

  • Fugitive, radical, communist and philosopher Angela Davis was the lefty hipster's pin-up girl and the right-winger's Afro-ed nightmare, and her authority and charisma are on full display in Free Angela & All Political Prisoners.

    April 5, 2013 | Full Review…
  • "Free Angela and All Political Prisoners" may seem to take place in a distant past, but it resonates with improbable timeliness.

    April 5, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A snappily edited, archivally wallpapered recollection of fearless behavior in the face of an antsy establishment. But it's equally significant as a pointed act of retelling.

    April 5, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Without straining for big-picture significance, it provides a composed look into the revolutionary spirit.

    April 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • People who weren't around during the '60s-'70s cusp can hardly appreciate just how weird that time was. "Free Angela" brings that weirdness back.

  • Fascinating eye-opener that not only brings history alive, but reverberates into today's controversies over guns, government surveillance, racial profiling, and media frenzy.

    January 1, 2016 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • An all too sobering reminder of how, in the purported land of the free, any voices deemed radical and hence dangerous can lead the powers that be to find any remote angle to silence them by whatever force and means they deem necessary.

Audience Reviews for Free Angela and All Political Prisoners

  • May 23, 2013
    Wow. Not a lot of love from users and this is curious. This documentary is well crafted in its exploration of the limits of free speech and what is deemed "acceptable" free speech during particular phases in American history.
