Critic Reviews for Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • "Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer" could be slicker, but it does its part in sharing in its central figure's project of recording the living history that surrounds us.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Ahearn works at a distinct disadvantage: Present to document the book's reception rather than its genesis, he has no direct access to the vibrant past about which his subjects reminisce, leaving him to merely coast on the iconography of Shabazz's work.

    July 30, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Ahearn hits all of the usual suspects, from Fab 5 Freddy on down, but his celebration of Shabazz inevitably takes on the tone of requiem.

    July 30, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The resulting film is low-key and, at least as far as its subject is concerned, decidedly uncritical.

    November 4, 2013 | Full Review…
  • There are many potent sequences where old-school B-boys look through Shabazz's work and see friends they knew -- and sometimes lost -- a lifetime ago.

    September 12, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Taken in its entirety, this celebration of a pioneering visionary-who never knew that he was one at the time-is a highly worthy endeavor.
