Movie Reviews

AALBC.com - 10/10 by Kam Williams A refreshingly-honest empowerment flick set against an historical examination of African-American homosexuality.
New York Magazine/Vulture - 10/10 by John Leonard ... it is more than welcome, full of generous quotations and ancestor worship-a memory book, a bildungsroman, and practically a palimpsest, with the past written over but not at all erased, still signifying.
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Richard Porton Evans's admirable desire to introduce a misunderstood era's legacy to a wider public helps to excuse the film's occasional clunky dialogue and narrative longueurs.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 9/10 by Dennis Schwartz Honestly, sensitively and movingly covers the life struggles of black, gay artists in the present and past.
Hollywood Reporter - 9/10 by Kirk Honeycutt This first feature from writer-director Rodney Evans ... heralds the emergence of an exciting new voice in black filmmaking, a man willing to look deeply into culture and mores to gain insight into problems that refuse to go away.
Planet Sick-Boy - 9/10 by Jon Popick A real treat for history nuts, but everybody else should dig it, too.
Variety - 8/10 by David Rooney While the cast is uneven, Mackie and Robinson both create sensitive, sympathetic characters.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Carrie Rickey Has the quiet urgency of a story that must be told.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum The filmmaker finds a way to pay homage to a lesser-known, valiant figure, sympathetically portrayed through Robinson's witty performance.
Boston Herald - 8/10 by Paul Sherman Most of the movie's clumsiness comes in documentary veteran Evans' mix of fact and fiction.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Ty Burr A very good drama about the difficulties of being young, black, and gay. With a bigger budget and a sharper focus, it might have been a great one.
Village Voice - 8/10 by Jorge Morales Not surprising for a film that uses a term paper as a framing device, Brother to Brother feels too much like a school project.
