Rabble rouser or activist? Opportunist or trailblazer? During his six-decade journey from pastoral prodigy to racial justice firebrand to elder media statesman, the Reverend Al Sharpton has been a polarizing figure on the national stage. LOUDMOUTH is the definitive look at his life and battles, featuring President Barack Obama, James Brown, Reverend Jesse Jackson and Senator Chuck Schumer.

“Stirring. Revisits a racially divided New York City and offers a critique of the news media then and now.”

The New York Times


The Guardian

“An enlightening history lesson that informs the fight for racial justice we still contend with today.”

LA Weekly

“Incisive and striking. A refreshingly focused film that skirts celebrity testimonials in favor of reframing the past to make change in the present.”

Ben Travers, IndieWire

“An unfiltered view of racism in America.”

The Hollywood Reporter

“As sobering a prism as any through which to view a troublemaker’s life, what hasn’t changed, and what count as incremental victories.”

The Los Angeles Times

“Riveting and essential.”


“Transcends biographical doc convention. Respectfully honours the subject at its core by putting the issue before the man with the megaphone.”
