All Critics (18) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (7)

  • This ambitious and heartbreaking documentary tackles no less mammoth a subject than the African-American identity as it exists in photographic imagery.

  • A fascinating, visually stunning, emotionally devastating documentary by Thomas Allen Harris.

    December 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This is sound-bite cinema, revealing at times, but also frustratingly basic stuff.

    November 20, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • With the thousand words vividly painted through each picture, we connect, identify and find solidarity.

    November 14, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Harris indulges in too many personal memoir detours and overdoes the talking heads, but much of the imagery on display is extraordinary.

    August 29, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Though a tad uneven, as a whole the documentary cannily juggles an overview of African-American history in general with the specifics of its photographic representation and talents.
