      100% Tomatometer 7 Reviews A look at the life and provocative work and writings of First Nations artist, Richard Bell. It reveals the 'two Richards' -- 'Richie' the provocateur and enfante terrible of the art world who challenges its whiteness and the Richard who spent his childhood living in a tin shed, learnt his politics on the streets of Redfern and is known in his own community as an activist. His polemics and creative outputs provide a lens through which to consider the last 50 years of First Nations activism in Australia and its links to global protest movements. Read More Read Less

      Luke Buckmaster Guardian Watching it feels a little like attending a university soiree, where everybody’s high-spirited and having a blast but always a heartbeat away from a spiky conversation, a contest of ideas, a provocative opinion. Rated: 4/5 Sep 24, 2023 Full Review David Stratton The Australian Interviewees include Gary Foley and the current Minister for Aboriginal ­Affairs, Linda Burney. As we approach the referendum on the voice, this film is essential viewing. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 27, 2023 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald A powerful piece of work, with all the anger, recrimination and hurt that we see in his art. Bell is a provocateur, a poet, a piss-taker, maybe even a prophet. Rated: 4/5 Jan 26, 2023 Full Review Andrew Parker The Gate The historical outline in You Can Go Now is rich and highly educational; the sort of teachings that should reach far beyond the country in which they originated. Rated: 6/10 Apr 28, 2023 Full Review Sarah Ward Concrete Playground Behrendt's approach is straightforward, but made dynamic and gripping through her subject, his story, the history behind both and the snippets focused on. Feb 24, 2023 Full Review Cris Kennedy The Canberra Times (Australia) Her [Larissa Behrendt] work on You Can Go Now is solid, putting her talking-head interview subjects at ease to draw out more than just her film's narrative, including some very personal stories and raw moments. Rated: 4/5 Feb 1, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
