    Beautifully done. If you are wondering how the US is in the state in which it finds itself, this kind of perspective shows how fundamental the issue of race divide has been for a long long time (and this is just one time period snapshot).

    (3.5/5) The most powerful moments in this film are when the subjects simply speak for themselves, in the time, of the time. Of particular impact for me was an interview with a young former prostitute and heroin addict who tells her story simply, sadly, and with a raw despair that shook me. The film itself, unfortunately, is often too scattershot or diffuse to make a similar mark. Nonetheless, it's a good primer for a history I haven't previously been privy to.

    I found it terribly interesting that the Swedish team that took much of the historical footage of this film caused an international incident by highlighting race tensions in the U.S. which resulted in a recalling of ambassadors. A great overview and look at some of the less well known characters of the movement. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Titling this documentary a "Mixtape" was very appropriate. Like a mixtape, it's a mixture of many things that, while they often feel more thrown together than connected, are for the most part very interesting.

    I never knew how much I didn't know about this time period. Absolutely fascinating, and for those of us who grew up in the 90s and weren't really educated on this stuff, totally important.
