Critic Reviews for Up Tight!
There's no backsliding, toward a conciliatory moderate conclusion. The passions and beliefs of black militants are presented head-on, with little in the way of comfort for white liberals.
It doesn't transfer well when changed from Irish revolutionists to black revolutionists.
Intelligently directed tale of urban revolt starring some of the finest black actors of the 60s.
Audience Reviews for Up Tight!
Uptight shoots first and asks questions later. It's not a perfect film but it does an interesting job of reflecting the tensions felt around the country at the time it was made. Uptight serves as a fascinating historical document for an era where race relations were precipitously poised to devolve into outright anarchy.
