(1996, Spike Lee) “Lee assembles a crew of African Americans travelling from South Central LA to attend Louis Farrakhan's Million Man March in Washington, DC, not only to celebrate an historic event, but to depict a microcosm of Black (male) America - and to highlight the experiences and attitudes that divide, define and unite men bent on achieving a sense of brotherhood.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out. 35mm. Approx. 121 min.
“What makes Get on the Bus extraordinary is the truth and feeling that go into its episodes. Spike Lee and his actors face one hard truth after another, in scenes of great power.”
– Roger Ebert
