June 26, 2017
It is timely and easy to follow, and fans of the First Amendment and haters of the Trump Administration will love it unconditionally.
July 7, 2017
...This is no "documentary." It's a prejudiced, partisan, ham-fisted polemic, so biased it would embarrass Pravda....a disgrace to documentary filmmaking in general and to journalism in particular.

Just because "Nobody Speak" has a timely message doesn't make it an ideal messenger.
December 20, 2018
Objectivity and freedom of the press is one of the foundations on which our country was based, and its ability to be controlled by those with deep pockets and influential authority is flat out alarming.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Knappenberger falls short of greatness by falling victim to the distraction that is Donald Trump.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 5, 2018
Watching Knappenberger's documentary will hopefully raise awareness about the state of jeopardy independent journalism is currently in and possibly prevent a situation like Gawker's from happening to another outlet.
February 24, 2018
What starts out as a standard documentary procedural ... soon becomes an exposť on how the rich and powerful in our country are attempting to silence the fourth estate.
June 22, 2017
A troubling foreshadowing of things to come if journalists are threatened, sidelined or attacked by powerful institutions and people more concerned with their own interests than what's best for the country or communities.
June 27, 2017
A funny, frightening, frustrating, and important film.
January 30, 2017
Nobody Speak, as artfully crafted and timely as it is, may in fact be old news by the time Netflix releases the film.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
January 31, 2017
A tribute to freedom of speech in journalism, and also its eulogy.
January 26, 2017
For those who haven't noticed their freedom of speech ebbing away, this film is certainly an important warning, but they should probably watch some more news videos and read some more papers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The key to Nobody Speak emerges in the candid interviews, which reveal how unnecessary the entire case probably was at the start, and how necessary it became.

The question isn't whether Gawker is worth saving, but simply a protection of first amendment rights.
July 18, 2017
Fascinating but unfocused docu on media, ethics, power.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 22, 2017
A film about the vital importance of speaking truth to power needn't be so concerned with dressing up its own frightful truths, but Nobody Speak still compels as an opening statement on journalism's dubious future.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
August 18, 2017
As Nobody Speak spirals outward from the Gawker case to examine the broader cultural conflicts between journalists and the powerful, it loses some of its focus but none of its righteous indignation
July 20, 2017
This is a documentary that covers such a salacious and outright bizarre story that nothing should really shock. A film about serious issues that plays at times like an absurd comedy. A film that sadly reflects the gutter within which we live.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Netflix does its first act of public service by presenting this overreaching but damning indictment of America's oligarchs assaulting the nation's watchdogs -- the free and independent press.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 30, 2017
Interviews Gawker editors extensively on personal toll of the suit and liabilities; reporters give inside look at the trial... conclusion gets over dramatic and heavy-handed.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
