  1. Has its awkward and rough edges, but there's a purity here, a goodness of intention and a commitment to justice.
  2. A most-affecting experience, an impressive accomplishment in all its aspects.
  3. Sensational...as authentic as news footage, and far more intimate.
  4. Breathtaking visual accomplishment.
  5. Each minidrama is quietly touching and compassionate, and Riker is honest enough to avoid suggesting easy solutions for the social, cultural, and personal challenges his characters confront.
  6. In their stark, black-and-white visual style, they are redolent of Italian neorealist cinema or fine muckraking WPA photojournalism.
  7. It's scant to the point of irrelevance.
