      Peter Debruge Variety Tiexiera and Hall lay the foundation for an essential discussion about the philosophy and ethics of nonfiction filmmaking — a subject so vast, it easily might have spawned a TV series or media studies course (and probably still should). Nov 6, 2023 Full Review Robert Daniels RogerEbert.com "Subject" includes harrowing stories while leading voices in the documentary sphere offer their insights. It’s not a film out for blood, which becomes a blessing and a curse for its filmmakers. Rated: 3/4 Nov 3, 2023 Full Review Calum Marsh New York Times At no point do Tiexiera or Hall deal with their own complicity in any of this: They are, after all, making a documentary, and we get no sense of how they might answer the questions they pose to other documentarians. Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Marya E. Gates Cool People Have Feelings, Too. (Substack) Offers an incisive look at the new documentary boom (looking at you, weekly shitty Netflix true crime and music “docs”) and the slowly fading line between insightful docs and reality TV/hagiography. Feb 13, 2024 Full Review Michael Atkinson LA Weekly/Village Voice The ambivalences in Subject pile up beautifully, and we can’t grump too hard on the filmmakers for posing dilemmas they can’t immediately solve. Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Jacob Oller Paste Magazine But when its pet topics enter into conversation with one another, revealing a throughline underscoring the basic rights of everyone working on a film project, Subject cruises along.
