Alan Scherstuhl
Village Voice
For the most part, the narrative here feels generational, representative, rather than invested in the specific incidents of specific lives. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Beautiful images can be a distraction in a serious documentary, but that's hardly the case here. They draw us in so we can better understand the hurtling changes that endanger the future of Cambodia and, by extension, much of the developing world. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Honest and well made but lacking a strong hook. Full Review
Nick Schager
The Dissolve
Prospects are dim no matter where these people choose to reside, and A River Changes Course captures their struggle with an ethnographic gaze that generally maintains enough detachment to avoid excessive, judgmental handwringing and heartstring-tugging. Full Review
Nicole Herrington
The New York Times
This human story is profound enough to stand on its own. Full Review
