Critic Reviews for Herblock: The Black & the White

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • It's a factually accurate account of the man's work and its importance and meaning in (and beyond) the nation's capital, especially now, in all this bitterly partisan noise.

  • In print, on the Internet and through multiple mobile platforms, newspapers solider on, but editorial cartoonists are an endangered species. Watching Herblock may show you why they're worth saving.

    January 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Herblock is an earnest, well-made accounting of a remarkable and important life.

    January 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Oppressively celebratory and numbingly reverential.

    January 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • He returned continuously to themes of economic and social justice. Starting his career at the beginning of the Great Depression cemented those instincts and gave him material to develop a distinctive style for portraying haves and have-nots.

    January 27, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Loving, informative, often fascinating portrait. But it could've done without the re-enactments.

    January 27, 2014 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
