WHOSE STREETS? REVIEWED

“Whose Streets” is such a difficult documentary. While it wants to make a point against police brutality, it approaches the case of what happened to Mike Brown in the worst fashion. The narrative against the Ferguson PD is handled in such a cartoonish fashion that a news ticket should be blasting the subtext throughout the film. There are fascinating people fighting to stop systemic abuse, but the documentary feels like a battle of who handled the situation worse than others. The Ferguson cops were wrong for how they handled the aftermath and the community activists did stir up a riot that they couldn’t control.

Ultimately, nothing gets answered. This is more of a political statement than documentary. I feel like an extra 20-30 minutes studying the aftermath and why the community responded in such a way would’ve informed the final film. Oh well, there’s more than enough material to revisit at a later date.
