Variety by

Has some style as well as compelling content.


Los Angeles Times by Kevin Thomas

Filmmaking at its most fearless, with Ostergaard creating a suspenseful, harrowing account of his original key subject, known only as "Joshua."


Austin Chronicle by Marc Savlov

It's the truth, unshackled and captured against all odds, and it's one of the most powerful documentary films I have ever seen, period.


Boston Globe by Ty Burr

Burma VJ’ retorts that eyes and ears are everywhere in our ever-tightening global communications mesh. Voices, too, and they get heard. The generals and the ayatollahs have every right to be scared.
