    November 4, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This brisk but full documentary about students at a Bronx high school taking a class that promotes literacy and poetry slams is, like its subjects, multifaceted, sometimes sad but ultimately inspiring.

    October 14, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Spanning four years, To Be Heard has a large enough scope to map its subjects' rocky road to reinvention, concentrating on various bumps along the way.

    Top Critic
  • However uplifting, To Be Heard, shot over the course of several years, takes a surprisingly unflinching look at the home lives of the three high schoolers.

  • Check your cynicism at the ticket booth. "To Be Heard" is one of the best documentaries of the year.

    October 11, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's impossible to watch Anthony, so bright and spirited, without raging against the forces that hold him back. And, singular as he is, he is also all too representative of an entire generation of kids in similar straits.
