Critic Reviews of "Trapped"Dorothy Rabinowitz Wall Street JournalJune 17, 2016
The film's most compelling argument emerges from interviews with women who now struggle to find abortion services, largely poor women who've had to travel long distances-trips they could scarcely afford-to find a clinic that was open.G. Allen Johnson San Francisco ChronicleMarch 17, 2016
Mostly "Trapped" is a portrait of the indefatigable efforts by doctors and clinic workers to stay open, and delves into reasons why women would want abortions ...J. R. Jones Chicago ReaderMarch 10, 2016
The rank hypocrisy of conservatives using government regulation to shut down independent businesses is topped only by the white pro-life activist outside one clinic who shouts at an African-American doctor, "Black lives matter!"Peter Keough Boston GlobeMarch 10, 2016
Porter deftly presents statistics, graphs, and background information. But she also shows the intimate, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking day-to-day drama of the dedicated staff and owners of the clinics ...Nick Allen RogerEbert.comMarch 04, 2016
Unabashedly pro-choice, "Trapped" is not a debate itself, but it has no need to be. Taylor's film does not just have the law on its side, but extraordinary, human elements of character and compassion.Andy Webster New York TimesMarch 03, 2016
"Trapped" is not a balanced analysis of the abortion debate; it makes its sympathies clear. But it is a powerful and persuasive rendering of a corner of women's health care under siege.Lucy Lau Georgia StraightMay 04, 2016
The result is a disconcerting -- and absolutely eye-opening -- examination of the sorry state of women's rights south of the border, an issue made no less concerning by similar conditions that persist around the globe.Jason Bailey FlavorwireMay 03, 2016
Riveting, powerful, and, with a Supreme Court decision on the "undue burden" of such laws due in June, timely as hell.Richard von Busack MetroActiveMarch 23, 2016
One is reminded of the anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon's famous quote-because if ever there was a case of laws being chains for the poor and cobwebs for the rich, here it is.Sherilyn Connelly SF WeeklyMarch 17, 2016
Dawn Porter's Trapped is a sobering look at the impact of anti-abortion legislation in the South.Lizzy Acker Willamette WeekMarch 17, 2016
Does the sight of Rick Perry taking away women's rights incapacitate you with sadness, or does it fill you with righteous rage? If the former, don't watch. If the latter, watch and be inspired to do something.Charles Ealy Austin American-StatesmanMarch 15, 2016
It's an interesting analysis.
