Movie Reviews

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.
AALBC.com - 10/10 by Kam Williams A refreshingly-honest empowerment flick set against an historical examination of African-American homosexuality.
Planet Sick-Boy - 9/10 by Jon Popick A real treat for history nuts, but everybody else should dig it, too.
One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank Swietek Although its reach exceeds its grasp, Rodney Evans' picture deserves points for its ambition and many elements of its craftsmanship.
Dallas Morning News - 8/10 by Philip Wuntch Takes on a plethora of phobias. Homophobia, racial prejudice and age discrimination are among its targets, and it hits them squarely and fairly.
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.
Boston Herald - 8/10 by Paul Sherman Most of the movie's clumsiness comes in documentary veteran Evans' mix of fact and fiction.
Variety - 8/10 by David Rooney While the cast is uneven, Mackie and Robinson both create sensitive, sympathetic characters.
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.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Carrie Rickey Has the quiet urgency of a story that must be told.
culturevulture.net - 8/10 by Lewis Whittington Quiet, thought-provoking...Robinson's portrait is joyously dignified, poetic and earthy.
Reeling Reviews - 8/10 by Robin Clifford Brother to Brother is a specialized film that will help bring to light the self-affirming ideas of pride in one's self and one's artistic pursuits.
