Two very interesting, diverse pairs of debaters are followed, which creates human interest in the documentary.

It's a great story in its own right, and it also addresses many shortcomings/weaknesses of our current system of high school level debate.

This documentary is fun, educational, and provides great inspiration for any kid. It showed at the L.A. Film Festival and generated amazing buzz. Everyone I talked to loved it. Of course cable picked it up. Now, not surprisingly, it gets two Emmy nominations. I thought New York Doll was amazing. Resolved--Wow! One Potato Productions scores again. As a lawyer, I recommend this to any aspiring law student (or otherwise) who plans on a career where he or she will have to think and speak on his or her feet. As a partent, I recommend this to everyone who wants to teach their kids about hard work, commitment, and being engaged in life. The fact that a U.S. Supreme Court Justice participated and appeared in this production speaks volumes about the important lessons that can be learned from this film. Kudos to Whitely and One Potato.

"Resolved" is riveting from beginning to end. I appreciated the educational benefits such as learning about the complexity of high school debate and what "spread" is. I was totally caught up in the lives of Sam Iola, Matt Andrews, Richard Funches and Louis Blackwell, all high school debaters with very different backgrounds. I liked the way this documentary weaved a story of hard work, triumph, and failure. It absolutely deserves the two Emmy nominations. I think teenagers would especially enjoy this film.

The graphics in this documentary are lively. Two very interesting, diverse pairs of debaters are followed, which creates human interest in the documentary. One of these pairs, black students from an urban school, pose the valid question of whether the contemporary debate technique of "spreading," which arose in response to timed debate portions, is elitist because it allows students time to present many arguments, which in turn necessitates much research by debaters (whose after-school time may be consumed by paid employment)as well as access to on-line databases that poorer school districts may not provide for their students.

This is a great expose on the state of high school debate as it is currently experienced. However, although it is really aimed at the classroom, the product I purchased is limited to private viewing so now I will have to purchase the E-DVD from the company.

I couldn't understand the dialog -- the students were speaking so fast. It was a bit alarming. I didn't finish watching the whole thing. Maybe I should try again.

This movie has something for everyone: people not really into debate, and just wondering what it's like, and hardcore debaters who want to learn about alternative theory arguments. It had me completely enthralled throughout, and left me with a more thorough understanding of current debate structure and policy. If you are looking for a good movie to show a debate team, a class of high-schoolers, or just an inquiring mind, Resolved is the movie for you!
