Tongues Untied
POV Season 4
Feature Film | 07/16/1991

Marlon Riggs’s Tongues Untied rises above the ‘deeply personal’ — far above it — in exploring what it means to be black and gay. Angry, funny, erotic and poetic by turns (and sometimes all at once), it jumps from interview to confession, music video to documentary to poem. —Craig Seligman, San Francisco Examiner
