Screenplay critic Trevor Mayes commented, "Given the current controversy over Hollywood diversity, this film is genius as all the emotions and economics of the black screenplay are exposed to a funny bone but also irritating a raw nerve."
Film director Rod Lurie said, "The truth is, those academy members will watch movies that deal with the heroism of the African-American community or the history of blacks, like '12 Years a Slave,' because that interests them. What doesn't interest them is the current black experience or black culture. A screenplay like 'Unsolicited Material' is a huge debate about the underlying economic assumptions made the film industry." Lurie is an Israeli-American director whose work includes "The Contender" and AMC's "Hell on Wheels."
Manohla Dargis wrote in the New York Times, "The screenplay questions what the literary scholar James English calls 'the economy of prestige'". After you see this film your prospective might be changed.
