Eric A. Gordon: Chilling undercover footage shows children being sold like animals to the highest bidder and others being abused by this pervasive slave labor.
Ed Rampell: Black audiences may be delighted to watch a rom-com featuring characters who look like them and are petit-bourgeois professionals, as opposed to being stereotypical lumpenized thugs, hoods and hos.
Arica L. Coleman: Green Book is the 21st century version of the movie Driving Miss Daisy (1989), except that Daisy Werthan would have never taken the wheel from her exhausted African American driver Hoke Colburn so he can make it home to his family in time for Christmas.
Ed Rampell: This being a French film, most of the married characters have affairs – but unlike Woody Allen’s movies which abound with couple-fluid partnering up, Non-Fiction isn’t very funny.
Bill Meyer: This is another amazing film by Roberto Minervini, who offers one of the best immersions into Black culture that the movie camera has ever captured.
