First Review In For The Documentary "Dark Girls"...

it’s not so good. The Hollywood Reporter’s film reviewer John DeFore has written, what is to date, the first official review of Bill Duke’s and D. Channsin Berry’s much anticipated documentary Dark Girls (which we’ve covered extrensively on S & A), after its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival; he calls it a “well-meaning but haphazard” film, and basically states that there’s a much better movie on the subject waiting to be made.

Perhaps. Then again one could argue that the subject matter is something totally unknown and foreign to him, so what the hell does he know? No doubt, when the film gets around, there will be more opinions voiced about it, but, for now, if you want to read DeFore’s review, you can do so HERE.
