Critic Reviews of "Blackbird"New York TimesApril 26, 2015
Despite its sense of mission, the film suffers from soapy excesses and narrative disjunctures.San Francisco ChronicleApril 23, 2015
Director Patrik-Ian Polk makes the ending a little too pat, but he makes us root for these characters to be happy, and for their world to be a better place.Washington PostApril 23, 2015
Anything that can go wrong, will - often in spectacular fashion.Film Journal InternationalApril 24, 2015
Patrik-Ian Polk makes a huge artistic leap with this deeply affecting, funny and original peek at one confused youth's coming out process.The DissolveApril 23, 2015
At no point does anyone in the film even vaguely resemble an actual 21st-century teenager; when these kids text each other, it comes across like science fiction.Baret NewsApril 23, 2015
A gospel-driven cross of Precious and Rent, only set in a sleepy Southern town that time forgot instead of New York City.Slant MagazineApril 22, 2015
The film is, like its main character, too naïve to understand or, at least, to deploy the reparative powers of camp.
