Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Employing the usual grab bag of documentary building blocks, Mr. Woods never quite melds his film into a compelling whole, though individual pieces can be fascinating."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"Even at 78 minutes, White Wash pads its material through repetition but remains a proficient portrait of how increased social, economic, and geographic opportunity fosters diversity -- in life and out on the waves."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"Feels simultaneously dense with information and analysis and as pleasantly breezy as a day at the beach-at least for its first half."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
