  • As scrappy and passionate as the actions it documents, "United in Anger: A History of Act Up" delivers a living tribute to a movement spawned by death and despair.

    July 5, 2012 | Rating: 4/5
  • A documentary that could have been a lot angrier but aims to educate rather than agitate.

  • Crucially, the variety of interviewees in Hubbard's doc-men and women of different races and classes-underscores just how diverse ACT UP was in its heyday.

  • Que o ACT UP foi essencial ao desmistificar a AIDS e melhorar as condies de suas vtimas algo inquestionvel. Mas Unidos pela Raiva no precisava repetir isso por 90 minutos para provar o argumento.

  • This story deserves more than a merely functional telling, which is really all it manages here.

    October 6, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A telling reminder of just how effective civil disobedience still can be when you tap into a forbidden emotion to unleash the requisite righteous rage needed to challenge an intransigent authority in collective and constructive fashion.

Audience Reviews for United in Anger: A History of ACT UP

  • Jun 05, 2014
    There is no doubt that ACT UP played a major role in the fight against the AIDS pandemic, but this documentary lacks a clear structure and is quite repetitious, showing too many interviews of people saying the same thing over and over - which becomes tiring really fast.
