A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Mr. Jarecki finds a way to show that denial and hope often grow from the same vine. Lives are built around the way they're harvested -- and this talented director has a feel for the soil. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Jarecki has created a tour de force of narrative ambiguity, and in doing so has made one of the most honest reality shows ever. Full Review
David Edelstein
Riveting and so suggestive that you can't consume it passively: You have to brood on it. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A jarring, mesmerizing documentary. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
