Critic Reviews for Shakedown

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8)

  • Performance is at the heart of "Shakedown," one of the reasons it's rich fodder for brainy considerations of LGBTQ identity and gender.

  • A thrilling and also valuable film. The audience must take the imaginative leap and accept the contradicting identities that Weinraub presents, without insisting that they must cancel out.

    February 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a nuanced, moving look at a haven of sexual freedom and expression, and raucous fun at the same time.

    August 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The grainy look adds an immersive texture to the film...

    July 28, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A film like Shakedown reminds viewers how hyper-masculine the gay-doc genre is. It's almost as is if most of them forget that the first letter stands for lesbian.

    May 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An artifact of a bygone time and place than anything. Weinraub captures everything, from interviews to in your face/fly on the wall conversations, with attentiveness and courage, spending the kind of effort only someone who truly cares would give.

    December 1, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
