  1. José Neves's rating of the film Field Niggas

    A film whose genealogy dates back to examples so illustrious as "On the Bowery" or "Pestilent City," but i must confess that its images raise me some objections, particularly when there is an insistence on a mechanics of exhibition and the extent of its conceptualization drags it to a visualization that is often confused with a clip and its rhetoric. The sound track gains in a free dimension, wider-than-the-visible.

  2. Slow Immersion's rating of the film Field Niggas

    There is no doubting that as a visual documentary this is a very impressive work; but the dialogue is mind numbingly excruciating to suffer and listen to. I know is the point and strength of the documentary, but just too irritating for me. Very well made piece.

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film Field Niggas

    Khalik Allah's debut feature is a phenomenal, stunning portrait of human life on Lexington and 125th in Harlem and the best American documentary in years. This is a portrait of Harlem so accurate and eloquent that it will still be great cinema 125 years from now. It takes a very gifted talent to photograph people in such a real way, capturing them so objectively, and it takes love to portray them so beautifully.

  4. MarcusArcus's rating of the film Field Niggas

    "It's like the government is ripping off the government, that's all there is." 3.75

  5. Disneyland Inferno's rating of the film Field Niggas

    Dziga Vertov meets Pedro Costa and Chris Marker is a stunning modern vision.
