Editorial Reviews

Many people remember Marion Barry as the philandering drug-addled mayor of the nation's capital. He's the poster boy for corruption, a pariah. Yet to others, Marion Barry is a folk hero who has dominated Washington D.C. city politics for over 40 years. Today, Barry is once again in the political limelight. Who is Marion Barry, really? A hero? A scoundrel? For the first time, Marion Barry: Not Down for the Count reveals the complete unforgettable story.

I loved this documentary from start to finish. I saw it when it first appeared on HBO. I even wrote the film makers an email because it was taking them so long to release it on dvd. They show the human side of Barry. And I don't know if they intended to, but the film is also a case study on the flawed way that America handles addiction. Marion Barry was a brilliant political mind. He created the largest black middle class in American history. He created a program that put felons back to work, he engaged minority communities in the process of government in a way no one had before him. All the while he was struggling with addiction. Imagine what he could have accomplished if we invested in treatment the way we invest in prisons? My heart breaks a little for Barry and his loved ones, and the support systems for any addict. This film is a must-see.

Marion Berry is a well educated country boy, ghetto and a bourgeoise (Boule')negro member of the AOA fraternity, and Ward8, South East Washington DC the hood loves him, he represents them to a T. Marion is labeled Mayor for life but as most people he has issues, drugs, prostitutes,fast women,etc the DVD did a very good job showing his pluses and minuses, his pros and cons.This low budget documentary's point is well taken .

A well-designed documentary recalling the turbulent years of Marion Barry's service as mayor of Washington, D.C. Well done and never dull.
