—Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

“All the hallmarks of a great legal thriller, [Kimberly] Reed puts flesh and bone to the arcane minutiae and forcefully argues that dark money represents the greatest modern threat to our democracy. Essential and riveting.”

—John Lopez, Departures Magazine

—Dennis Harvey, Variety

“As heartening a political story as you are going to get these days.”

—Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“''Dark Money,' with its focus on the personal stories of how individuals are impacted by the flood of campaign money in the system, is an example of how 'storytelling matters when you are trying to raise awareness of the issues,' Chuck Todd (Meet The Press) said.”

—Ted Johnson, Variety

“One of the most galvanizing films at AFI Docs this year is 'Dark Money'”
