Critic Reviews for Run This City Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

All great documentaries have a compelling central figure, and Hodge has struck gold with Correia, who projects a know-it-all manner, trash talks former mayors, steadfastly proclaims his innocence and doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.

Top Critic

Told at a breakneck pace, the show makes its way through the scandal while constantly asking viewers to adjust their perception of Correia , who participated in the series.

One of the few shows so far that might reward a return engagement, this documentary study of small town politician Jasiel Corriera pulls off a classic bait-and-switch.

Apr 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Series director Brent Hodge teases all of Correia's sides in its expedient first episode, which makes a person want to watch more episodes -- easily done, since they're all so very short.

A legitimately interesting documentary about a scandal-plagued young mayor of Fall River, Massachusetts, that manages to be interesting in spite of the Quibi formatting.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's compelling material, and expertly assembled by documentarian Brent Hodge, who brings the same deft and breezily appealing touch he's applied in films like I Am Chris Farley and A Brony Tale.

Run This City was probably my favorite show in this bunch, examining small-town politics with a cast of colorful figures and a smart, twisty take on how to tell the story in nine-minute chunks.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Correia's a raucous narrator of his own twisted life story, guiding the documentarians through his own let's-call-it-skewed perspective. Unfortunately, interviews with other politicians and townspeople are helplessly shorn of context.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's an engaging watch as Correia is a charismatic young man, and three quibis in it remains unclear if he's a fraud or a truly good politician.

"Run This City" earns relevancy in its approach to the political machine... The political intricacies are surprising, and the story makes for a fun and important ride.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

One of those stories about small-town politics that feels perfectly graftable to our broader grift-happy political moment.

    Great doc about a surreal political landscape in Fall River. Blew through all the available episodes and can't wait for more to drop.
