Critic Reviews for Strong Island
A view of systemic racism through a highly personal and artistic lens.
Strong builds a poignant, methodical portrait of loss. Telling William's story won't bring him back, but at least it will let the world know he lived.
There are questions that circle around themselves, endlessly, providing no broader outlook. However, by the same token, it is that very lack of objectivity that makes Strong Island the experience that it is. It is a very tough film to shake.
The doc is a demanding, wrenching watch; an important work, if not necessarily one you'd recommend to your friends.
This potent film gives equal weight to complex emotions as well as bare facts. In the same way, it's not just the story of a man's death, but also a study of the aftermath.
Audience Reviews for Strong Island
