"Ava DuVernay, director of the Martin Luther King drama SELMA, has made a fiercely radical documentary for Netflix in sympathy with the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement. Her film argues that America’s INCARCERATION of black men is a phenomenon with its roots in SLAVERY, and that the resemblances are not minor or ironic echoes but symptoms of the same STRUCTURAL cause.
-- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
