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.

One of those stories about small-town politics that feels perfectly graftable to our broader grift-happy political moment.
April 10, 2020
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.
April 8, 2020
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.
April 6, 2020
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.
April 6, 2020
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.
April 6, 2020
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.
April 6, 2020
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.
April 6, 2020
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.

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.
