Critic Reviews for All Rise

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

In its strongest passages, Monster is about establishing the humanity of a young black man. But it hardly expands beyond a timely Law & Order episode, albeit with more of a focus on racial politics.

In graduating to features from a busy career in music videos, commercials and photography, director Anthony Mandler can't get out of his own way.

January 23, 2018 | Full Review…

For student from stable, middle class Harlem family...this is extreme application of unjustified perception of black males by law enforcement...leading to mass incarceration.

January 31, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Good performances by the entire cast are hurt by distracting choices.

February 26, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

It sounds gloomy and somber, it's true, but the emotionally rousing Monster does find threads of hope amid the despair.

February 5, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Anthony Mandler's background before shooting his narrative feature debut was in music videos and commercials, but the ADD-style filmmaking he uses for "Monster" suggests he's not ready to fully command a two-hour movie.
