Critic Reviews for King: A Filmed Record... Montgomery to Memphis

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • King attempts no analysis. It raises reportage to the power of ritual, and for all its lapses it is a most solemnly beautiful film.

  • Emphasizes the wide range of his activism, including his opposition to the Vietnam War and his battles against economic injustice.

  • This celluloid monument earns every minute of its three-hour running time.

  • The excellent three-hour documentary film added quantity to our knowledge of the life and time of "the beginner" Martin Luther King, Jr. We need a great dramatist and/or a great biographer who will give us his true quality.

    September 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A timeless tribute to a selfless martyr who led his people to the Promised Land by holding fast to his fervent faith that their willingness to endure suffering along the way would exceed their enemies' capacity to inflict suffering.

  • Worth it alone for Nina Simone's haunting rendition of Why (The King of Love Is Dead), heard as Dr. King's mule-drawn casket led over 100,000 silent mourners from Ebenezer Baptist Church on a 3 1/2 walk through the streets of Atlanta.
