Critic Reviews for Pass Over

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

As a brilliant mix of the theatrical and cinematic, Lee's vivid adaptation of Pass Over does not concern just Nwandu's story, but the very experience of it.

April 20, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A brief yet rousing experience, one that retains its theatrical power - and then some - via Lee's deftly constructed transfer.

April 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Pass Over won't tell anyone anything they don't already know, but Nwandu is an undeniably talented and timely voice - one that howls to be heard.

April 19, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

More powerful than its filmed-play format might suggest.

January 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Nwandu's dialog shapes street language into poetry and a compelling narrative, unique to these men and this place.

May 23, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

If only Spike Lee had further stretched the play's boundaries, allowing his free-associative sensibilities to roam.
