Tongues Untied (1989)
Critic Reviews for Tongues Untied
At heart, it's a celebratory film which buzzes with intelligence, unashamed emotion, adrenalin, and that strange tenderness forged in suffering.
[Riggs] is anguish, passion, rage and defiance, using the camera to undermine prejudice and ignorance while boldly and eloquently celebrating diversity.
Tongues Untied is that rare, almost perfect work of art that sprang naturally, organically from a tribe yearning to snap the chains.
Watching Tongues Untied is like walking through a locked door for the first time... The tongues untied here will never be silent again.
Audience Reviews for Tongues Untied
I cannot but urge everyone to rediscover this audacious, provocative and essential masterpiece that spoke and still speaks for the black/gay fight against oppression - a wonderfully poetic call to action that remains important as long as silence continues to echo with complicity.
