Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 11/13/2009
"A refresher course on the history of American left-wing politics in the 1960s and '70s as well as an affectionate personal biography of Kunstler..."
A.V. Club - 11/12/2009
"Emily and Sarah Kunstler's decision to be the voices for their documentary WILLIAM KUNSTLER: DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE makes sense, because the dramatic arc of the film has partly to do with how they reconciled their father's legacy."
Washington Post - 11/20/2009
"[A] fascinating portrait that's part conventional documentary and part highly personal memoir..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/20/2009
"[A]bsorbing....The film provides a rich and entertaining snapshot of America's Vietnam-era zeitgeist and of our nation's sometimes flawed legal system."
Box Office - 11/22/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "A good percentage of the masses will amass to soak-up this quintessential freedom fighter at his best and most defenseless."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/11/2009
"[A] vivid documentary....[His daughters] don't shy away from their father's showboating ego, or his eagerness to take on any client..." -- Grade: B+
