  • Well-conceived and skillfully executed.

  • Riley doesn't portray this fellowship of black athletes as victims, but as pioneers proving themselves against white supremacy behind enemy lines. And yet this doc also pulls them back down to earth.

    August 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Draper paints affecting thumbnail portraits of athletes like Ralph Metcalfe, a slightly older sprinter who became a role model for Owens, and Howell King, a boxer who... was forced, for no good reason, to do his qualifying bout a second time.

    August 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Draper's thorough research process yields fascinating details on the lives and careers of the athletes, particularly their early histories as amateur competitors.

    August 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The fearlessly blunt Olympic Pride, American Prejudice is freed from the crowd-pleasing constraints often imposed on the biopic genre.

    August 5, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • History is not neat and tidy, however much we wish it could be, and "Olympic Pride, American Prejudice" is more than adept at getting to the truth about perhaps the most mythologized event of the modern Olympic movement.

  • Draper makes good use of interviews and archival materials, even if the voice-of-God narration and emphasis on detailing the political context sometimes make Olympic Pride feel like an educational film for high school students.
