“A quietly seething look at present-day policing in America.
An experience best had in the cinema”

– The Hollywood Reporter

“Craig Atkinson brings the government’s program of channeling military hardware to law enforcement across the nation starkly to light.”

– Variety

“This film that uses documentary to go deep into a world with a cinematic experience. We were excited by the directorial debut of a cinematographer who already has created a great body of work. Do Not Resist shines a light on the frightening story of the militarization of the police. In an impactful way the director uses his amazing access to look at power and force from the inside.”

– 2016Tribeca Jurors
Laura Poitras, Doug Tirola and Roger Ross Wiliams

“One of the most relevant and valuable documentaries of the year”

– AwardsCircuit.com

“A snapshot of an infuriating disconnect between power players and disenfranchised targets”

– IndieWire

“An eye-opening experience”

– The New Yorker
