Critic Reviews of "13th"Michael Phillips Chicago TribuneDecember 28, 2016
It's a crazy amount of ground to cover, but only rarely does 13th sacrifice clarity for cinematic energy.Leon Neyfakh SlateDecember 28, 2016
In its sweeping treatment of the history of American racism, the film brought me closer than I've ever been to understanding how it could be that so many people could have ever grown used to the moral catastrophes that were slavery and Jim Crow.Brian Lowry CNN.comDecember 28, 2016
Given the concerns about relations between law enforcement and minority communities, 13th could hardly be timelier.Tom Long Detroit NewsDecember 09, 2016
It's all very alarming and upsetting and terrifying.Oliver Jones New York ObserverNovember 09, 2016
Manages to capture the depth and insidiousness of more than a century of cultural, societal and economic oppression along racial lines and then condenses it into a brisk 100-minute package that could literally slip right into your pocket.Stephanie Zacharek TIME MagazineOctober 13, 2016
13th ... is dense with information, and it moves fast. But it's also a story told in images, and the ones DuVernay has chosen ring not just with sadness and horror but also cautious optimism.Aramide Tinubu Shadow and ActApril 12, 2017
What the film does beautifully, is its connecting of a thread that runs through the past one hundred and fifty years; we did not come to this place in history by accident.John Anderson America MagazineMarch 01, 2017
[DuVernay's] movie, for all its good words and bad pictures, lacks the fierce urgency of now.Bradley Gibson Film ThreatFebruary 22, 2017
Watching this documentary makes it clear that there has been a problem with incarceration used as an economic and political driver for a long time and that action must be taken to change this.Erick Estrada CinegarageFebruary 01, 2017
A hard, painful and necessary documentary with well-presented interviews, which helps us understand similar situations that are also present in Mexico. [Full review in Spanish]Robert Roten Laramie Movie ScopeJanuary 05, 2017
Director Ava DuVernay ('Selma') has made a very powerful and provocative documentary film which highlights a clear danger to American democracy. It shows how America's enormous prison industry and its largely black population came to be.Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible CelluloidDecember 28, 2016
It's an absolute must-see.
