“Joel DeMott & Jeff Kreines have created a monumental and anarchically funny non- fiction film about a group of working-class teenagers — girls and boys, white and black — that hits polite audiences where it hurts. This is coming of age, as witnessed in Joel DeMott and Jeff Kreines’ monumental non-fiction film about working-class teenagers — girls and boys, white and black.Kids smoke dope, get drunk, sass their teachers, disobey the taboo against race-mixing, try to break away from their mothers and fathers. The result is a free-flowing intimacy with the teenagers’ world and “the immediacy is refreshing, and shocking. As searing as it is rambunctious, this film brings out all the middle-class prejudices against the working class that American movies rarely confront.”
— Michael Sragow, The New Yorker
“One thing is for sure: Seventeen is without a doubt one of the greatest movies, perhaps the greatest, about teenage life (not to mention American life) ever made.” — Indiewire
“Seventeen, by Joel DeMott and Jeff Kreines, is one of the best and most scarifying reports on American life to be seen on a theater screen.” ONE OF THE YEAR’S BEST FILMS — The New York Times
