David Mermelstein Wall Street Journal A combination of pure documentary and improvisation, the film lacks a conventional plot but offers instead many gripping scenes. Oct 1, 2020 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker Hondo's passionate, wide-ranging voice-over commentary, addressing the hero in the second person, blends confession and observation, aspiration and despair, societal and personal conflicts. Jan 22, 2018 Full Review Carson Timar ButteredPopcorn Nearly every piece of the film truly feels inspired and where sure there is the occasional scene that feels a bit too on the nose, that is far from enough to truly hurt this powerful piece of cinema.
