      Raw and energetic like the music that inspired the 1970s political movement, White Riot offers invaluable insight into how music can change the world -- and how Rock Against Racism still resonates.

      Alexandra Heller-Nicholas ABC Radio (Australia) White Riot is a wild ride, a timely but never preachy reminder that Black lives mattering is not a new fight for those in the music industry. Rated: 4/5 Mar 24, 2021 Full Review David Stratton The Australian The film is a reminder as to how deeply entrenched are the roots of fascism, and not only in Britain. Rated: 4/5 Mar 20, 2021 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald The film is highly entertaining, suitably chaotic and unpredictable, but with a clear purpose -- to show that RAR made a difference.

      Kevin L Good overview of the Rock Against Racism shows and the anti-racism movement in London, and the general sociopolitical culture of the 70's in GB. Some nice clips of some of the better bands on the scene at the time, esp. The Clash, Tom Robinson Band, and Sham '69. Great stuff that Saunders, Black, Bovell, Gregory and others were leading the charge on. 3.8 stars Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/01/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the greatest movies I have ever seen.
