The Blood Is at the Doorstep (2017)
Critic Reviews for The Blood Is at the Doorstep
Ljung's clear-eyed film finds hope within terrible circumstances, and strength within heartbreak.
[Erik] Ljung's willingness to let the film breath, to let those gunshots play out in real time, and to hold on interviewees for a few moments after they have stopped talking gives the film a sense of reflection amidst all the heated emotions.
As The Blood Is at the Doorstep demonstrates, real people - and by extension, all of us - suffer when we accept the status quo. We can't walk away.
Extraordinarily detailed examination of police shooting of unarmed mentally ill African-American man and intimate portrait of devastating yet energizing impact on his family.
The Blood Is at the Doorstep is an auspicious cinematic debut which reminds that for every criminal justice statistic, there's a stirring story which deserves to be deeply considered.
