The 2018 Armenian revolution fuels Garin Hovannisian’s gripping documentary about a modern-day political power struggle and the citizen activists who refused to accept it.

This galvanizing chronicle combines front-line reportage with new interviews that describe incidents the cameras could not capture. Hugely informative, briskly paced, and offering a laudable balance of perspectives, I Am Not Alone is a feat of nonfiction storytelling and a must-see for anyone eager to make sense of recent history.

Garin Hovannisian’s eye-opening documentary is an inspiring portrait of democratic self-determination.

The best film I’ve seen in ’20…should be an Oscar contender…absolutely outstanding — stranger than fiction and tremendously inspiring.

While throwing in everything but the kitchen sink can result in a stylistically muddled work, I Am Not Alone feels remarkably cohesive, and this is mostly due to the urgent, propulsive editing by Barry Poltermann.

The magnificent I Am Not Alone is a call to action to all of us, for none of us are alone when we stick together.
