Zavi thinks: Fun to watch, insightful, and available on Netflix instant watch – what more could I ask for in a documentary? This one is definitely not just for the classroom; it’s enjoyable enough to just watch at home for the fun of it.
Panda thinks: Just watched this for the first time tonight! For someone who considers themselves decently well versed in US queer rights history, I was blown away by the amount of new information presented to me by this documentary. Lots of really amazing professional and amateur news footage–really gripping stuff. It is essentially a very straightforward, condensed history of the modern US queer rights movement. This is the sort of film that should be shown in public school history classrooms everywhere.
