      Ty Burr Boston Globe 9500 Liberty is not just about the clash of immigrant Hispanics and white nativists, but about what happens when a community's civic machinery is hijacked by ideologues and extremists -- and what exactly it takes for the silent center to push back. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 9, 2010 Full Review Cary Darling Dallas Morning News A compelling glimpse of a community and, by extension, a country, in the throes of change. Rated: 3/5 Jul 30, 2010 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Park and Byler began as objective documentarians who found this story being pressed upon them. They become advocates and are clear about that. Rated: 3.5/4 Jul 8, 2010 Full Review Chris Faraone Boston Phoenix Notwithstanding that it's an anti-hate advocacy piece, this YouTube-spawned documentary gives plenty of voice to the depraved foot soldiers and their opportunistic enablers. It just so happens that they look like race-baiting rednecks ... Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 9, 2010 Full Review Frank Swietek One Guy's Opinion This homespun documentary offers an insightful look into one of the earliest eruptions of local acrimony over the issue of illegal immigration. Rated: B Aug 3, 2010 Full Review Jeff Vice Deseret News (Salt Lake City) The movie allows all sides in the issues debated to state their cases, using their own words. If anyone is seen in a negative light, it's only because their words and actions condemn them. Rated: 3/4 Jul 22, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A You-Tune-type documentary on the battle over immigration policy in Prince William County, Virginia focusing mainly on probable cause. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Thank you Eric Byler and Annabel Park for this fascinating story. "What this film has in urgency and timeliness makes it a unique witness to our times" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member The Titanic didn't lean this far "Left" when it struck the iceberg... Avoid this at all costs unless you believe in open borders and no accountability for one's actions. Just remember, "comprehensive immigration reform" is another way of saying Amnesty! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Emotionally engaging. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Is this what will happen to AZ? A must-see film, especially for those is here in AZ. The filmmakers will be at Hawkins Gateways Pavilions on Sun. May 2 for a Q& A after two of tbe shows. Check www. 9500Liberty.com for more info. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A very powerful documentary about the current immigration issue occuring in the United States.
