All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

  • Knows exactly where to look and what to ask, but never sticks around long enough to learn anything. What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire? is hardly a disappointment, but it does, in places, feel like a missed opportunity.

  • This is in many ways a frustrating film, its commitment admirable but its execution chaotic.

  • Despite charismatic subjects, the film seems so concerned with its handsome black-and-white aesthetics that it never feels angry enough.

  • An essential and inspiring look at communities living through police brutality.

  • Stunningly shot in black and white in a quietly mobile observational style, the film conjures a heartrending sense of community while depicting a heartbreaking lack of opportunity and equality.

  • It's a film that's supposed to be about anger, but anger, though visible throughout, is couched in something more subtle, more unclassifiable, and thus more disturbing.
