Critic Reviews for Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (11)

  • Tells a miscarriage of justice tale that practically bursts with societal issues to address: homophobia, socioeconomic inequality, child abuse, trial misconduct, tabloid hysteria, junk science and innocence advocacy.

    September 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A powerful act of advocacy.

    September 16, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The documentary persuasively argues that the charges were wildly implausible, and that homophobia against the women, who had been in lesbian relationships, contributed to the convictions.

    September 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four compellingly tells a maddening true story that touches on many of America's most enduring hypocrisies.

    September 14, 2016 | Full Review…
  • This gut-wrenching real-life drama presents an unfiltered look at what a myopic and prejudiced is capable of.

    September 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Without the sloppy presentation of the confounding facts at the end of the film, it would have been a more impactful film. But what it does succeed at is bringing attention to a case that should never really be forgotten.
