  • At times, Jolie rises to the pulpit when she should stay on the ground. Her theme is too complex for her scattered screenplay to encompass. It's as a director that Jolie shines. show more

  • Represents a brave undertaking on Jolie's part. It's impressively steady filmmaking for a first-timer, and a powerful, powerfully disturbing subject to take on. show more

  • Jolie deserves significant credit for creating such a powerfully oppressive atmosphere and staging the ghastly events so credibly, even if it is these very strengths that will make people not want to watch what's onscreen. show more

    This is a scandalous movie that most Bosnians despise and curse. It tries to portray a psychological disorder called Swedish Syndrome as a Romeo & Joliet type of a love story. A bizarre, sickening, and impossible historic forgery! Next time I suggest Ms. Jolie places such a vomiter somewhere inside the US as under attack by the Chinese who mass-rape American women (while ripping their guts open). In it, the raped American women can\'t help it but fall in love with the most gruesome of the Chinese. Then the rest of the world will cheer Ms. Jolie\'s for her virtuosity. Until then, we\'ll keep thinking she\'s pure Illuminati evil of a special kind of psyche (the disturbed one). One word: Kony2012.
