“Director Heather MacDonald ducks behind the headlines to lay bare the passions, strategies and clear-eyed organizing that drove the forces, pro and con. She has chosen a cool, low-voltage style, examining heated issues with near-clinical precision. As the level of violence escalates, the documentary acquires the tension and suspense of a fiction film. Ballot Measure 9 is that rare film that an audience enters sure of what's to come only to find expectations overturned. Its local chronicle evolves into a far-ranging exposé of hate politics that crosses lines of race, religion and sexual identity.”   —B. Ruby Rich
