Unrest has made it to the big times - the New York Times has reviewed it. It's wasn't Manohla Dargas and the review is short but its mostly positive - a good sign for the biggest and most influential media outlet in the country.
Mainly, though, “Unrest” is a video diary and, as such, is not always easy to watch. Ms. Brea bravely spares very little in showing how the disease literally leveled her life — at times leaving her crawling the floor — and strained her marriage. The film is also not vested in an upbeat ending. Rather, it powerfully insists on giving a voice to victims whose greatest challenge, apart from their symptoms, is surmounting a world of indifference.
