13th is a harrowing and vital film. It provokes thought by playing the images and ideas that so often our society, especially the government, wants to keep undercover. It is a stylish and important trip through the darkness of our history that raises maybe more questions than answers. It's occasionally a bit liberal with the facts, as most documentaries with an agenda can be, but when it shows the unedited deaths of black men and women in the last year, it's tough to argue with.

This is a great documentary for the intro to this subject matter. Glad it's been made. The New Jim Crow is required reading after this.

Genuinely engaging and frightening in a way that few documentaries of this sort are (by which I mean talking heads -> screen of stats -> voice telling history over old photos -> repeat). If you're me you come from it feeling hopeless and angry, but I'm certain more crafty people will be inspired to make change happen.

Alexander's book says all of the same things, but this is probably just as effective. I would've liked more statistics, but if a lack of numbers helps more people see and understand the main arguments here, then that's good.

W3E1P2S1V1M1A1R2. Was pretty underwhelmed by the format--strictly interviews with 5 or 6 people who already agree with the premise of the film (and only 2 who disagree, given short shrift); and some historical footage. It also spent too much time rehashing stuff we already know about Jim Crow, etc., leaving too little time to fully contemplate the truly fascinating new revelations about Alec and the war on drugs, etc. But definitely a disturbing (in a good way) film.

DuVernay isn’t addressing slavery straight on, but using it to get to her key theme, that America’s prison system is abhorrent, and has grown rapidly in recent decades. Prisons have replaced plantations. A movie like 13th is a work of activism. DuVernay isn’t “fair” in the way old-school journalism believed in. The film is not objective. But it does use facts to buttress its points, and all of those talking heads make for quite a board of experts.

An urgent film on a very important and heavy subject matter that works decently as a piece of rhetoric and not so well as an in-depth analysis. The statistics and facts often speak for themselves though and I can appreciate it as an engaging call to action with at least some reflective insight. Not a great film but it's kinda not meant to be.

Occasionally goes a bit too far in twisting the presented facts, but most of the time it doesn't really need to, as the problem at the heart of it is all too real.

The Donald Trump montage is the perhaps the most effective one I've seen since the finale of Spike Lee's Bamboozled. Undeniable. Powerful. I bet the IMDb message board for this movie is completely civil and free from logical fallacies.

Extremely powerful stuff (even if there are a small handful of admittedly baffling editing choices). Ava DuVernay is obviously a very talented filmmaker, and though much of this isn't new information, it's a very bold film in that it pulls no punches against the prison-industrial complex and white supremacy in America.

Does anyone care that Reagan announced his War on Drugs (targeting smugglers in South Florida) at least 2 years before crack? Why did his wife go on tv shows like Diff'rent Strokes aimed at children telling them to steer clear of drugs if the goal was to lock them up years later? Why do people forget that crack cocaine & open air drug markets destroyed black communities far more than pricey powdered cocaine ever did? Why do they ignore that the Congressional Black Caucus voted for harsher laws?

An inundation of atrocities some real and some far more complicated than as presented. It still stands as a nice piece of documentary work. Ultra conservatives will lambaste it but there is admitted republican railroading and deception in regards to policy. Its nice to see ALEC get some coverage too, and insanely unethical pre-fab legislation creator.

An important film about an important issue in this country: mass incarceration, particularly of blacks. What it lacks in cinematic invention and flair it makes up for with a convincing historical portrait of how we got to this point in the US.

The editing kept distracting me from the nakedly partisan political message. Apparently America's prisons are full of black men because white Republicans are so racist, alright that's dumbing down too much but it's comically blind to Democrat wrong-doing

I loved how the movie followed his own advise during the credits by starting the humanizing process. Beside that: I need a drink. God, why is Reagan judged so different than Nixon?! People are stupid. Sorry, I take that back. White people with power are evil. That's more accurate.
