Movie Reviews

Get informed about Darfur, genocide
Careful-thinker, Ph.D. | Mt. Vernon, WA, USA | 04/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good first study of Darfur for those who've read about it but haven't really understood it very well. Nicholas Kristof, NY Times reporter who was one of the first to break the story, is interviewed extensively and well. A Harvard prof. whose name escapes me is also a credible, articulate source of historical and current information. Footage of Darfur refugees and their stories is indeed haunting, as is interview footage with Elie Wiesel. Includes a somewhat inspiring call to action -- and coverage of Barack Obama's and Sam Brownback's responses. George Clooney narrates (and executive produced). Definitely worth seeing."

"I watched this last night on HBO. Very well done but one of the most haunting documentaries I've ever watched."
Vivid Portrayal
H. Carlan | 03/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great portrayal of the plight in Africa - specifically in Sudan. Great film for anyone who does not know about genocide or for those who already know and would like a different view."
