Planting a flag firmly at the intersection of patriarchy, sexism and white supremacy, "The Rape of Recy Taylor" is a documentary of multiple layers and marvelous gumption.
The film is a haunting, damning unpacking of history that also reminds us how little progress we've made.
Essential viewing, not least for its emphasis on the crucial role of women in the civil-rights movement ...
In the highly charged political and social environment of today's America and today's Alabama, the bald facts of this case, however they are communicated, remain acutely provocative.
What's onscreen here is often so very busy that The Rape of Recy Taylor turns into a parody of a certain mindset in American documentary filmmaking.
A welcome, stirring tribute to black female resilience through the ages.
The Rape of Recy Taylor shines another damning spotlight on the appalling legacy of slavery. Yet the film itself never quite gets to grips with how to tell Taylor's story in a way that's simultaneously sensitive, cinematic and journalistically rigorous.
The subject matter is harrowing enough without extra strings.
Very much of the Me Too moment, this uneven but important documentary exists to give a voice to the voiceless, in this case the "staggering" number of black women raped by white men throughout US history.
A prescient and important film about the civil rights movement and one woman's fight for justice, which is told honestly and respectfully.
[A] harrowing and very instructive documentary...
[Director Nancy] Buirski's documentary acknowledges [Recy Taylor's] role in a bigger story.
