Critic Reviews for Free Angela & All Political Prisoners
No excerpt available.
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.
"Free Angela and All Political Prisoners" may seem to take place in a distant past, but it resonates with improbable timeliness.
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.
Without straining for big-picture significance, it provides a composed look into the revolutionary spirit.
Audience Reviews for Free Angela & All Political Prisoners
A good telling of Angela Davis' story of persecution, prosecution, and salvation which only dips its toe into her ideas. Perhaps because we're still a lot more comfortable with her as a pin up girl than as a purveyor of ideas? I think the minute or so used for a pot shot at Richard Nixon near the end would have been better used revisiting the farmer who posted Ms. Davis' bail. He got a couple of minutes of interesting screen time, then disappeared from the story.
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.
