"SELMA is a necessary film, even an essential one, with more than its share of memorable performances and vivid, compelling sequences."
Kenneth Turan | LOS ANGELES TIMES
"SELMA invites viewers to heed its story, meditate on its implications and allow those images once again to change our hearts and minds.”
Ann Hornaday | WASHINGTON POST
“This is the film of the year - of 1965 and perhaps of 2014.”
Richard Corliss | TIME Magazine
“DuVernay's look at Martin Luther King's 1965 voting-rights march against racial injustice stings with relevance to the here and now.”
Peter Travers | ROLLING STONE
“Intelligently written, vividly shot, tightly edited, sharply acted, the film represents a rare example of craftsmanship working to produce a deeply moving piece of history.”
Stephen Farber | HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“DuVernay has done a great service with Selma. Not only has she made one of the most powerful films of the year, she's given us a necessary reminder of what King did for this country...and how much is left to be done.”
Chris Nashawaty | ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"SELMA is one of the best American films of the year - and indeed perhaps the best - precisely because it does not simply show what Dr. King did for America in his day; it also wonders explicitly what we have left undone for America in ours.”
James Rocchi | THE WRAP
“This is an intellectual approach to an emotional issue - and it delivers, powerfully and beautifully.”
