Critic Reviews of "The Other Side"Boston GlobeAugust 31, 2016
Look away at your own peril.Chicago ReaderJuly 21, 2016
Minervini has captured a segment of American society too often ignored and mocked, but sometimes he's overtaken by the urge to romanticize decrepitude.Globe and MailJune 10, 2016
In the end, the power of Minervini's pseudo-fiction gives way to a much blander version of pseudo-reality.VarietyMay 20, 2016
Miraculously [manages] to find a serene beauty amid so much desperation and squalor, honoring its characters without letting them off easy.Hollywood ReporterMay 20, 2016
It's ultimately hard to tell if the movie is trying to render its subjects with some humanity or otherwise if it's taking advantage of all these poor, beautiful losers.RogerEbert.comMay 20, 2016
An immersive, almost harrowingly naturalistic plunge into the lives of marginal Louisianans obsessed with guns, drugs and belligerent resentments.Reeling ReviewsAugust 22, 2016
Cowriter (with Denise Ping Lee)/director Roberto Minervini has found a forgotten pocket of America that exemplifies the rage evident in the 2016 presidential race and, at least in the section devoted to Mark, it is a surprisingly complex picture.NewcityJuly 21, 2016
It's like Larry Clark with stakes, with a beating heart, or Harmony Korine with candor instead of vaudeville. Whatever the mix of truth to fiction, a sense of authenticity pervades each gesture.The Young FolksJuly 14, 2016
It's the little details that hit the hardest in Roberto Minervini's new documentary The Other Side-an exploration of extreme poverty in northern Louisiana ...Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)June 30, 2016
If you want to get a sense of that broader spectrum -- and of some of the most exciting, unnerving filmmaking being done in the United States -- see The Other Side. And come to understand just how apt its title is.In These TimesJune 22, 2016
Minervini's movie is a reality show, but one busy challenging our presumptions, not validating our isolation.HeraldNet (Everett, WA)June 17, 2016
I acknowledge this film's power, and still feel uneasy about it -- and unsure of its point. But there's no question that in many scenes, it captures remarkable details.
