Reviews: White Boy Rick (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Alex Brannan @ CineFiles Reviews
    • Excerpt: White Boy Rick gets some mileage out of [its] premise, but it never fully sells its sympathies.
  • [New] | Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: White Boy Rick benefits greatly from not relying on the same rise-and-fall formula we’ve seen in many other crime epics. It’s a patient, intimate look at poverty and the failings of the justice system, which rests on some wonderful, authentic performances.
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: Yann Demange’s film is more character study than a traditional rise and fall Scorsese-style hustler film – and that’s a good thing.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: [The marketing] sells a boisterously good time with synth beats and quick cuts of excess and extremes. I’ll warn you now that Yann Demange’s film is much heavier than such appearances predict.
