The critics agree: Black or White is colorful!
Steve Persall of The Tampa Bay Times proclaims, “Black or White adds to the discussion of race relations.”
The Austin Chronicle‘s William Goss raves that Black or White “examined the political compromises necessary to make strides toward landmark social change … savaged the current landscape of would-be political correctness on both sides of the matter… and … cast a harsh spotlight on the unhealthy expectations that the entertainment industry places on young black women to succeed.”
Film Journal International’s Michael Sauter gushes, “Welcome back, Mr. Costner.”
The Wrap’s Inkoo Kang calls the movie “tonal” and “monologue.”
Grantland’s Wesley Morris notes, “It’s like Tyler Perry’s Crash.” Wow! High praise!
