It has succeeded at something far greater by letting the audience come to know all the brave women and men it gets to come forward with their stories, putting a human face on this most inhumane of crimes.

Stunning, powerful, infuriating.
February 23, 2016
A useful picture that should be required viewing at freshman orientation.

U.S. universities have plenty of financial incentives to minimize rape on campus, as this enraging film demonstrates. But there are women fighting back...

...in the moment (hey, there's nothing that says documentarians have to abide by lawful definitions of "innocent until proven guilty", I guess) there is an undeniable power to The Hunting Ground that is hard to ignore.

The whole thing made me fearful for my daughter and ashamed. The Hunting Ground underscores all that and brings to light the faces wronged and those looking to make it stop.
December 18, 2015
An unnerving expose about the proliferation of rape on college campuses across America.

It's an awfully effective formula. If you're not disgusted by the institutional apathy revealed in The Hunting Ground, you may actually be a sociopath.

It's not the numbers here you'll remember, of course, but the stories. A montage of students relating how they called their parents, post-rape, is the saddest thing you'll see on screen this year.

College campus sexual assault is exposed for the American epidemic it truly represents in Kirby Dicks' deeply disturbing call-to-action documentary.

Highly upsetting.

An important film to see for parents, students and anyone involved with academia.

Important but devastating viewing.

When and where your frustration and anger boil over while watching "The Hunting Ground" is an individual experience, one that will be different for everyone who sees it.

Perhaps "The Hunting Ground" is more valued as activism than journalism.
April 9, 2015
The Hunting Ground qualifies as activist filmmaking. More power to it. You can read all the statistics you want, but there's no substitute for bearing witness - especially in such overwhelming numbers.

Oversimpliies matters somewhat, but...the subject is an extremely timely one, and it presents an extremely important side of it quite persuasively.
April 3, 2015
This is a story to make blood boil and change demanded.
April 3, 2015
Provocative and heartbreaking.

The Hunting Ground is a clear piece of survivors' advocacy. Dick's purpose is not to be fair to both sides. But is that such a problem when no one has been fair to his subjects?
