It's impressively clear-eyed about the bigger picture...

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

As a rapper and a businessman, Jay-Z is entitled to invest his money as he wishes. Free Meek is a strong example of what his energies can help produce.

This compelling documentary series tells that story in affecting detail and shows how the "Free Meek" protest campaign has grown into a broader movement working to reform America's probation and cash-bail systems.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Unusually subtle reenactments convey the frustration of feeling trapped in a system determined to squash your success and control your every move, despite your best efforts to satisfy its restrictive demands.

Edgy, dramatic docu calls for criminal justice reform.

It's hard to look away at the clear injustice he suffered and could suffer again.

Aug 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The overall framing is downright impressive. From the interviews to the reenactments, Free Meek has complete control over its narrative.

Aug 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Free Meek is a thorough, effective, and eye-opening series that presents the infuriating circumstances that have halted this man's music career.

    Solid work by JAY-Z and Amazon. #FreeMeek is a compelling success story about the (in)justice system in America. But it's just the beginning... there's still a lot more work to be done.

    Really interesting, eye opening account of problems with the criminal justice system. Highly recommend.
