An unfiltered view of racism in America.

[LOUDMOUTH] gives a fuller and more nuanced look at a man who, for all his flaws, has proven to be one willing to fight the good fight for lon- ger than most.

Josh Alexander’s doc tries to look at the many sides of Sharpton and come up with a picture that takes into account how the good, the bad, and the ugly of his persona plays into a decades- long campaign to right wrongs on a local and national level. It’s a movie that earns its moni- ker in the best possible ways.

David Fear

Rolling Stone

The documentary is a trove of rarely, if never before, seen footage. There’s an eerie quality to these clips, too, as they show an unfiltered view of racism in America. It’s a reminder of the thin line between past and present battles.

The Hollywood Reporter

Loudmouth contextualizes Sharpton’s legacy as an extension of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rep. John Lewis and others, while at the same time chron- icling his unique longevity despite plenty of naysayers along the way.
