  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: 13th will fill your mouth with bitter anger but, if there’s a way forward, it’s one a filmmaker like DuVernay can get behind.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A call to speak truth to power regarding the history of racism in the U.S. and the creation of a prison industrial complex.

    • Excerpt: Yes everything explained and highlighted fits DuVernay’s thesis, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It means that if you look past your own arrogance and misinformation, the truth may turn out to be the opposite of what you thought.

    • Excerpt: In short, it’s a must-see for anyone disturbed by the violence shooting across our nation.
  • James Roberts @ Glide Magazine
    • Excerpt: As difficult as it might be to watch 13th it’s important that you do. Watch it alone; watch it with friends; watch it with family. Gather your loved ones, you parents, your grandparents, and your children and just watch it. And when you’re done watching it, consider it, really think about it, and talk to each other about it.
