REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a grisly, authentic, meticulously researched, pulse-quickening political chiller about a hot-button topic that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..has a choppy, fumbling screenplay that lurches between shrill editorializing and vagueness while sorting through more characters than it can comfortably handle or even readily identify..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
“..this accomplished debut feature avoids most of the usual pitfalls, channeling its outrage into a tense, focused piece of storytelling with a powerful sense of empathy..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
