Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A snappily edited, archivally wallpapered recollection of fearless behavior in the face of an antsy establishment. But it's equally significant as a pointed act of retelling.
Fresh: Fugitive, radical, communist and philosopher Angela Davis was the lefty hipster's pin-up girl and the right-winger's Afro-ed nightmare, and her authority and charisma are on full display in Free Angela & All Political Prisoners.
Fresh: Without straining for big-picture significance, it provides a composed look into the revolutionary spirit.
Fresh: Prisoners is captivating from start to finish.
Excellent documentary. An accurate and compelling historic piece. BTW: You're obviously illiterately ignorant. Angela Davis has not been a member of the communist party for many years. Besides, have you ever been to a communist country to even compare? Probably not, just traveled around the corner from wherever you live, oh, and in front of your tv watching fox illiterates.
This movie was awe inspiring. I grew up in san jose and was a teenager during this time. Because of angela davis i learned what real racism was what real hatred was and is. I finally got a real understanding of what civil rights was and what hardships that black people were going through just because they were black.
The only thing i didnt like about the movie is that it ended too soon. Thank you for having the courage to stand up for your beliefs. What a remarkable woman you are.
A must see!
A very informative film. This is an opportunity for those who remember, and those who never knew what Dr. Davis' contribution has been (continues to be). Not only her contribution, but everyone else who dared to stand. Watch and "think" for yourself.
